Cooper phosphorus alloys

Copper and phosphorus alloys are fitted for the grazing of copper and, with the utilization of flux, also of its alloys (brass, bronze). They have high conductivity and it is recommended the rapid heating with a torch. They are not recommended for brazing ferrous materials and inox because they can create fragile intermetallic compounds.

With the refined copper containing dissolved oxides it is appropriate to adopt a neutral or slightly oxidizing flame to avoid the formation of cavities due to the reduction of oxides, defined as fragility by hydrogen.

Phosphorus alloys should be avoid if it is used gas containing high sulfur contents. They are successfully used in hygienic sanitary pipes since, not containing zinc, they do not risk galvanizing dezincification.

PHOSPHORUS ALLOYS

Self-descaling for copper-copper brazing, they require the use of flux with
copper alloys: cannot be used on ferrous materials, nickel, and aluminium. Fluidity increases with the increase of the phosphorus content. Strong brazing for the healthcare, refrigeration and air conditioning industries. Its good capillarity suggests 0.03 ÷ 0.08 mm plays.

SILVER PHOSPHORUS ALLOYS

Copper self-descaling products require flux on copper alloys. They allow
a good filling at lower temperatures and a good fluidity at higher
ones. Recommended particularly for sanitary and refrigeration installations with joint play of 0.06 ÷ 0.13 mm.
