“Soldering” is the process of joining two pieces of metal by melting and then flowing a filler metal into the joint. Typically, the filler metal has a relatively low melting point in comparison to the metals to be joined. Only the solder is melted, not the base metal pieces being joined. Soldered joints are typically not very strong.
“Welding” is quite different. It is the process of joining two pieces of metal by fusing them together. The base metal pieces themselves are melted, causing them to fuse. Sometimes a filler metal is added to the joint and fuses into the base metal. Welded joints are as strong as the base metal and much stronger than soldered joints.
SolderWeld’s products are unique in that they work for both soldering and welding applications. SolderWeld’s filler rods melt at low temperatures like traditional solder filler but achieve a high bonding strength like a welded joint. SolderWeld’s products create bonds that resist pressures as high as 20,000 to 30,000 p.s.i. SolderWeld’s also sells a heat absorption product that can be used in both soldering and welding applications, which is unique in the industry.
Thus, “SolderWeld” is not merely a descriptive term for soldering and welding products. It signifies unique products that produce weld-strength bonds from soldering, and work in both soldering and welding applications—two different metal bonding techniques that generally do not mix
