Repair work was never this easy! The HTS-2000 and HTS-528 high-strength brazing rods can repair wheels for cars, trucks, Rvs, trailers and other aluminum and steel wheels in no time. It’s easy, quick and long-lasting.
You must have seen those alloy wheels that lend a ride that swanky, sporty look. Much as these large diameter alloy wheels look good and improve performance, over time speed and road conditions cause a lot of wear and tear. The cyclical stress is high and the ventilation, disk attachment holes, the flange as well as the rim take a toll. The result? Cracks, dents, bends and scratches all start to show.
Trouble is, replacing these wheels by the dealer and work shops can be an expensive affair. The answer has come in the form of several niche repair shops that employ our hi-tech, state-of-the-art brazing rods. The repair is of superior quality, and the result is durable and tough.
Experts recommend our HTS-2000 for aluminum alloy wheel repair. It has high tensile strength, can easily penetrate past impurities, has better elongation and a low melting temperature. What’s more, with this no flux rod, you won’t need any machine. Plus you get a tougher weld than even the base metal. All you’ll need is a heat source (propane, butane, mapp or oxy-acetylene) and you’re good to go.
For steel alloy wheel repair, the HTS-528 is your best bet. With built-in flux, this rod works well on steel, copper, nickel, cast iron, brass, bronze. It’s great when it comes to melding two different metals. That’s why shop owners say, ‘Thanks to these brazing rods, I’ve never had to turn a customer down’.
The HTS-2000 brazing rod makes gas welding a breeze. Little wonder then that machine repair shops have moved to using these rods instead of the conventional Tig welding and heli-arc machines.
Traditionally, the welding of metals like aluminum require to be covered in flux to keep out oxygen from the hot metal, so there is no formation of oxides that decrease the strength of the weld. The great thing is that the HTS-2000 doesn’t need any flux for gas welding.
What’s more, since this rod doesn’t require the use of a welding machine, it offers you the freedom of mobility. You can carry the gas welding tank out into the field, or even on a truck or a trailer. You won’t even need an electrical outlet. Plus the equipment is self-sufficient and doesn’t cost you much at all.
With the help of a gas welding torch, this rod gives the weld more tensile strength, elongation, low melting temperature and even the ability to get past impurities like corrosion, anti-freeze and oil. In the end, the welding area will actually become tougher than even the base metal.
Plus, this second-generation brazing rod can even be put to use in the fabrication of diesel engines, automobiles, bikes, aero planes, boats, trucks, tractors, rivets, awnings, ladders and gutters.
To begin the welding, direct the flame on the thicker element so it can absorb more heat. Shield the thinner element from the heat by inserting the high-strength brazing rod as required. The rate of the deposition of the filter metal can be controlled by pushing or pulling the rod from the tip of the gas flame.
So steel or aluminum, your wheels will love this duo of brazing rods.
