Effect of Bonding Temperature on Crack Occurrences in Al2O3/SS 430 Joints Using Cu-Based Brazing Alloys
AbstractThe effect of bonding temperature on crack occurrences in α-Al2O3/SS 430 joints using Cu-based brazing alloys was investigated with emphasis on the microstructural characterization, hardness, and analytical residual stresses of the joints. The brazing was conducted using Cu-7Al-xTi and Cu-7Al-xZr (x = 2.5, 3.5, and 4.5) alloys at 1000 °C and 1080 °C leading to solid–liquid and liquid-state bonding, respectively. Cracks occurred in the joints brazed at 1080 °C irrespective of the alloys, while crack-free joints were obtained at 1000 °C for joints with only Cu-7Al-xZr alloys. Increases in the bonding temperature or utilization of Cu-7Al-xTi alloys led to a formation of brittle Fe-containing intermetallic or Fe-Cr phases in the brazed seams due to the dissolution of Fe from SS 430, which deteriorated the mechanical properties of the brazed seam. Maximum residual stresses of the real brazed joint were obtained by combining the calculated yield strength and measured hardness of the brazed seams. Eventually, when the hardness of the brazed seam was less than 107 Hv, the yield strength was 124 MPa or less and the maximum residual stress generated in the joint corresponded to 624 MPa or less, leading to a crack-free joint.
