MTC has developed several braze alloy compositions that will directly bond ceramic to metal or other materials, including graphite and diamond. Applications include brazing industrial diamonds onto ceramics or metal components for heat spreaders or ceramic windows, as well as brazing graphite to substrates such as titanium for incredibly stable ion traps. Alloy compositions vary and include those designed for use in a variety of settings, from very low temperatures to very high-temperature applications.
“MTC has been perfecting active metal brazing for the past two decades, which adds to available material brazing options and facilitates cost-effective one-step joining,” said Tom Sandin, product manager for Wesgo Metals. “We also develop our own brazing alloys, making us unique in the industry. Some of the newer applications, including brazing metal to graphite used in heat exchangers for cutting-edge aerospace applications, simply would not have been possible if the components had to be metalized first to facilitate brazing.”
