Compatible Filler Metals for Joining Ceramic

When joining ceramic to metals a lot factors need to be considered… First is always the expected service environment, temperature and thermal cycling. Second is the ceramic and the metal materials being joined. And third, the size and geometry of the joint. Ceramic:metal bonding does require careful analysis of the chemistry of the materials and […]

Accomodating Thermal Expansion Mismatch

Metal fillers (solders and brazes) can join a wide variety of materials, including aluminum, copper, stainless steel, refractory metals with aluminum oxide, aluminum nitride, silicon carbide and other oxide, nitrides and carbides… However, the success of bonding ceramic to metals depends on the exact ceramic and metal materials and the joined assembly size and geometry.
