Any Tips on Soldering Aluminium
Aluminium Soldering Kit
All you need to get started:
Propane/Butane gas blow torch and a stainless steel wire brush (which you can get from your local hardware store or plumber supplier)
1 meter of aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ welding wire
EasyAluWeld™ are appointed agents for RSI
the company behind this amazing product called aluAgent
formally known as AL85PLUS
A new technique to thermally join aluminium and most other non ferrous alloys!
Also refered to as, aluminium soldering
Simple steps: Follow our Do-It-Yourself aluminium welding guide
How to weld aluminium
Clean the item to be welded by removing all substances using a wire brush, ensuring the surface is free from any grease and foreign particles
Using a propane/butane blow torch, heat up the item to be welded to 380ºC - 400ºC
Once melted, spread the aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ around using a flat screw driver or similar tool
Let the item cool down slowly. Do not use water, to cool the welded item down
Pure aluminium melts at 660ºC
aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ melts at 380ºC - 400ºC
In other words, you can't mess it up
It really is that easy, to weld aluminium
Please Note: We do however advise
Not all aluminium welding applications are suited to using aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™. It may well be better, in certain applications, to use aluminium TIG welding for better results.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for advice if you are not certain.

TÜV approved ! Made in Germany !
Length of weld, per meter of aluminium soldering rod used
The Standard wire will weld up to 10 meters, the High-Stability 150 wire up to 8 meters, per 1 meter of rod used. In perfect conditions, it could be possible to weld 15 meters if the weld bead/filet is thin.
(This is totally dependent on the application of the work to be done and the amount of weld deposit you decide to leave on the weld joints)
• Low working temperature – thus only the slightest or no deformation at all to the work piece
• Diffusion at a temperature above 420 °C
• Easy separation of the parts by reheating to 380 °C
• Joining of different alloys and materials of different thickness
• A seam up to 15 meters long can be produced from one meter of aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ wire (2.5mm)
• High joint strength of up to 2.6 times of aluminium
• Use of various heat sources such as laser, hot air, butane, propane, induction heating, etc.
• No special training or special tools are required
• Low purchase and handling costs
• No toxic waste – no waste disposal costs
• Free of lead and cadmium
Aluminium Soldering Instructions:
How to use aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™
Fix and warm up the work piece to a working temperature of 380 °C. Use the aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ wire to check if this temperature has been reached on the work piece. Apply the aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ wire to the joint as soon as it becomes liquid. Keep the wire liquid by a continuous heat supply during the procedure. Now penetrate the oxide layer of the work piece with a pointed object (screw driver, scriber, etc.) by moving it two or three times through the molten metal seam.
The oxide layer can be penetrated with ultrasound or laser in serial production. Continue to apply heat to the work piece to initiate diffusion. The molten metal starts to diffuse through the oxide layer at a temperature of approximately 420 °C.
Let the work piece cool down slowly after joining.
Fields of application:
Joining of aluminium, aluminium alloys and castings as well as zinc-aluminium
• Suitable for repairs, can be drilled, milled, turned or threaded
• Joining of a variety of different aluminium alloys
• Joining of materials of different thickness
• Filling of fissures in aluminium
• Cars, motorcycles, leisure, hobby, sports, technology, household and industrial use
Hardness (Brinell HBW 2.5/62.5):
Working temp./melting point:
Melting point pure aluminium:
up to 2.6 of aluminium
Rockwell B 55-62
up to 3 - 6 % (depending on the cooling process)

Aluminium oxide becomes brittle at approx.
Diffusion starts at approx.
Thermal resistance of joined parts up to max.
Tempering (annealing) of the material in a furnace at approx.
Aluminium Soldering Which Type of Flux
There is no need to use any flux. All that is required is to penetrate the oxide layer of the molten aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™.
Surfaces treated with aluAgent - EasyAluWeld™ are often harder than the base metal (aluminium).
