Just saw an infomercial on an aluminum rod used with a propane torch for aluminum and the like repair by the name of Alumalloy. It was kind of a low budget production, but if the stuff worked, it would sure be easier than having something heliarced. Anybody heard or used the stuff? At $45/pound becomes a bit pricey to try.

thanks

I personally think the stuff is awesome, a real breakthrough if you ask me. it sure beats the heck out of JB-weld or paying tons of money to have something aluminum welded at a shop. 45 bucks a pound is kinda steep, but if it works as good as it needs to thats a miniscule drop in the bucket compared to welding fees.
the only thing I would be concerned about is it's ability to carbonize and be able to hold up to extremem heated environments. so far it looks to be useful for just about everything I personally would need it for, but you just have to take into consideration what the prupose is...... whatever you're gonna use it for just make sure that the repaired environment doesn't exceed 700 degrees and you should be in good shape. : )

dear jerry u.

if you would like to get all the info on "alumalloy"
you can call toll free @ 1-800-917-WELD(9353)
and they will fax (not e-mail) a fact sheet. i spoke to an engineer on 7/29/98 and he said the only environment that is detrimental to the product is salt water. the repairs have to be sealed with epoxy primer or paint. clear epoxy paint works adequately according to him.

i am an engineer myself, and i do design for aluminum fabrication in a marine environment. if this product works as good as they claim, operators could do field repairs without ever returning to port.

good luck raymond impastato

I have seen a product like you describe at farm shows for several years. It demos real well, so I bought some (about a $1.00 per rod as I recall) . Sadly it has spent the last couple of years somewhere on one of the benches mentioned in the post below. You use a stainless steel brush to clean the surface first and I can't remember to buy one. I got to handle a bunch of their demo items and they felt like they would hold.
Good luck.

You can afford to try U.S. Alloys #328 for under $25.00#. It's Gauranteed to work. You also get other technical welding assistance if needed.

I've used it with good results too, but like Farmer states "you have to use the stainless steel brush". This is to avoid contaminating the base metal (the part to be repaired). Also, use a clean or new brush for best results. If the brush has gunk or rust or whatever from the last thing cleaned, the "Alumalloy" won't stick.
As I recall, "Alumalloy" is a type of solder, and is subject to all the problems you'd encounter trying to solder dirty parts...

Have you thought of using some of the regular aluminum arc welding rods (regular stick, NOT Tig or Mig)?
