The Source for Active Solder Alloys

Bonding without fluxes or plating

Reducing bond contamination risks during brazing and soldering and eliminating the need for plating on metals typically used in metal to metal bonding and aluminum brazing. See how S-Bond Technology works.

Dissimilar Materials Joining

Brazing and soldering of dissimilar materials needs to accomodate differences in materials chemistry and thermal expansion properties of the materials being joined. Lower temperature metal bonding using S-Bond active solders, lowers thermal expansion mismatch stresses and the active elements in S-Bond solders permit these solders to wet and adhere to many base materials.

Bonding of Ceramic to Metal

Ceramic metal bonding for joints that are hermetic and thermally conductive. Can be used to solder ceramics and is used in carbon bonding, and sapphire bonding. Active soldering in many applications can replace ceramic brazing. More information on Ceramic Bonding >>

 

Aluminum Joining

Aluminum bonding in one simple, flux free step and can replace aluminum brazing in many applications. Active solders eliminates the need to plate before soldering and aggressive chemical fluxes are not required thus post bond cleaning is not required.

Range of formulations

Supporting soldering hierarchy… a range of active solder filler metals provides for a range of soldering process temperatures when aluminum bonding, ceramic metal bonding and carbon bonding. See our Solder Alloys.

 

Low temperature bonding

Protecting sensitive assembly components… joing a range of materials with active solderis with melting temperatures ranging from 115 – 450˚C. Bonding services are provided that take advantage of all the attributes of active soldering such as aluminum bonding and ceramic metal bonding. For more information on active solder processing >>

News & Highlights

In recent years, active solders have made their way into use in solar panel manufacture. To understand where S-Bond solder alloys are being used one has to understand the solar panel construction. Solar panels consist of arrays of solar cells, ...
S-Bond Technologies (SBT) has recently developed a low temperature (below 300˚C) bonding process for aluminum. This development enables aluminum to be joined at temperatures far below brazing and conventional vacuum diffusion bonding temperatures (normally in excess of 550˚C). Lower bonding ...
Carrying water to the space station is a real challenge and cost, hence recycling water is critical. Waste water, sweat and other ISS water is constantly recycled in a complex system that evaporates and condenses clean water for reuse. For ...
