Brazing of Ceramics

Once ceramics are metalized, Marketech can braze to a variety of metal parts. We are experts in ceramic to metal and metal to metal brazing.

We offer a full range of ceramic to metal brazing services including the active alloy process which is cost efficient when quick turn around is required. Typical ceramic materials which can be brazed include aluminum oxide, sapphire, beryllium oxide, YSZ, diamond, sapphire, silicon nitride, boron nitride, and aluminum nitride.

Brazing has many advantages over welding and in most cases, the cost is very competitive with welding. Advantages include cosmetic appearance, cleanliness, and baked-out surfaces. We have capabilities for brazing assemblies with like or dissimilar metals. Typical metals include KOVAR, 42% Nickel-Iron, copper, stainless steel, Inconel, molybdenum, beryllium, titanium, tantalum, and nickel.

Careful consideration to geometry, matching of thermal expansion and metal type must be made. Consult a Marketech engineer for details or design recommendations.
