Never tried it, but I will. Just ordered 1lb.
GOOD FIND
I hope this shit works because I'm going to make my intercooler with it.

I called to see how safe this stuff is. I wanted to know what’s in it but it's proprietary. They said it contains no lead mercury or cadmium and it comes with an MSDS (material safety data sheet)

When It gets here I'll post a followup.

are propane torches hot enough to melt aluminum? Maybe it has magnesium powder in it :)

Ya, that would make for some nice fireworks!!!!

I dont think so though.
It's some special alloy with a melting point of 750F.
Maybe I'll send a small piece out for elemental analysis :)

They say the joints can hold pressures of over 700psi. (not like I'll ever need that much but hey)


Funny thing is the "steelaloy" they have is good only to 450F, so it's no good for exhaust work. Oh well, ya cant have everything.

I actually purchased this stuff over two years ago. I had a B18c that I bought for 200.00 because the back of the block was cracked. I saw this stuff and purchased it figuring...whats the worst that can happen you know. So I bought this hatchback and repaired the back of the block with this stuff. The entire oil pressure sending unit was cracked off. I took about two hours and repaired it. No leaks, no problems, ended up selling the car for a great profit and it still runs to this day. I have always had this stuff since then. It flows very much like solder and the data speaks for itself. I think, given its simplicity, the tensile strength and other properties are pretty impressive. Its strong and threads pretty well also.

Also, thinking still about some uses I have used this for. I had an LS motor which came out of wrecked car. It was a low mile B18B, but the portion of the block that attaches the driver side motor mount got fairly damaged. I filled the entire area in with this stuff, then drilled and tapped new bolt holes. From there I remounted the engine mounts and even torqued them. Stuck the motor in an older Integra I had, sold the car to a friend for a profit. Once again, no problems...and thats an engine mount!

I just tried using it on 1/8th aluminum plate.
I'm having problems with adhesion. It dosent want to stick to the aluminum.
First I used the wire brush like they said and it diddent stick.
Then I hit it with the grinder to really clean it off and still no luck.

Hey vtecnitrocrx, how did you get it to stick?
