can braze anywhere that you can arc weld without the need for an oxyacetylene torch,
hoses, regulators, or expensive and heavy gas bottles!
These incredibly versatile ZENA®
NO-Gas Arc Brazing Rods let you braze and fill with a high quality high tensile strength
(50,000 lb. / 18% elongation) bronze alloy using only your arc welder!
You can also use these special
arc brazing rods for:
- joining copper alloys to stainless
steel and ferrous metals, including cast iron, OR
- for increasing salt water corrosion
- to produce large,
heavy bronze overlays.
Highly versatile, smooth running,
easy-to-handle, Bronze alloy electrode rod for both ferrous and nonferrous applications.
Use for filling in defects on
brass and bronze, joining copper alloys to ferrous metals, including cast irons,
for salt water corrosion resistance and where large, heavy overlays are required.
- Tensile Strength

Strength (psi & N/mm2)
||50,000 psi (340
psi (210 N/mm2)
105, Rockwell B78
Recommended Welding Current Type / Polarity:
AC or DC straight polarity (electrode
100 - 135 Amps
- Excellent wear resistance.
- Ideally suited for heavy overlaying
and joining galvanized steels, copper, bronze, brass or any combination.
- Tail Pipes
- Drill Bit Extensions
- Clean weld area.
- Preheat is not necessary except
for heavy or complex sections which should be preheated to 400 F (200 C).
- Maintain a short arc gap.
- Fill in craters prior to extinguishing
- Use a slight weaving technique
or a stringer bead.
- Upon cooling, slag can easily
be removed by light chipping and brushing.
- For multi-pass work, it might
be necessary to reduce amperage setting as base metal increases in temperature.

NOTE: These rods will work with engine driven welders
made by Miller, Lincoln, Hobart, Century, Esab, HTP, Mitsubishi, Thermal Arc, and
other companies. When comparing rod specifications, you will find that they function
well with ZENA 150A and 200A welders which are comparable to, and will do the same
job as, for example, a Miller 225 Bobcat welder, a Hobart 250A welder, a Century
200A welder, or a Lincoln Ranger 8 welder. Of course, 160A, 175A, 180A, 275A, or
even 300A, or 400A welders would be also in the same category. MIG and TIG torches
made by companies like Tweco and Forney are also compatible with this technology.
NOTE2: In addition to service trucks (particularly
popular are Ford Chevrolet and Dodge Diesels) and all types of 4x4's (including Jeep,
International, and Toyota), these rods can also be used with all types of heavy equipment,
including backhoes, front end loaders, track loaders, forklifts, and tractors as
well as all types of utility vehicle.
