1703

High-silver content Cadfree® brazing alloy containing nickel and manganese

1703 is a silver alloy containing Ni and Mn and is designed for the brazing of hard metals. It is recommended for joining steel tools and sintered carbides.


Applications
The presence of nickel gives excellent wetting for sintered carbides like tungsten carbides for cutting tools. Manganese has good deoxidising powers and nickel increases the strength.
