Gas atmospheres for brazing can vary depending upon your base materials, process, part quality, and cost considerations. Commonly used industrial gas atmospheres for brazing include nitrogen, hydrogen, nitrogen/hydrogen mixtures, nitrogen/methanol mixtures, argon, and argon/hydrogen mixtures. Air Products applications engineers can help you select the right brazing atmosphere tailored to your process requirements for reducing potential, wettability, and soot prevention, as well as maintaining excellent and repeatable braze quality.
