Galvanite™ Tin-Zinc-Copper solder is a new Lead-free formulation designed specifically for high quality repairs to Galvanized Steel surfaces. This solder is simple, effective, and easy to use in both manufacturing and field applications. Just like the original Galvanized metal, Galvanite™ metallurgically bonds to the Steel, for a seamless protective barrier that outlasts Zinc rich paints and sprays.

 

Galvanite™ exceeds performance standards as specified by ASTM standard A780-92 for repair of Galvanized parts.

Benefits & Features

Galvanite™ has been designed to accomplish three important Lead-free objectives:

  1. Provide excellent cathodic and barrier protection, far superior to Zinc paints and alternative Lead solders in abrasion resistance, adhesion, and hardness
  2. Allow easy application at low temperatures with any heat source
  3. Produce a Lead-free composition to address environmental and health concerns

Applications

  • Restore a Galvanized coating on a Galvanized Steel part repaired by welding
  • Provides an extremely strong and corrosion resistant joint
  • These joints support most Steel buildings and bridges for decades without maintenance
    • Can be applied to a substantial thickness in almost any orientation, penetrating deep into cracks and imperfections to provide a seamless protective barrier
    • High Zinc content provides excellent cathodic protection and the repair blends and bonds with the original Galvanized metal
    • Paired with Kapp CopperBond™  Flux
    • NOT recommended for joining parts together
      • Hot Dip Galvanizers: Small defects in the surface of freshly Galvanized Steel can be easily repaired with Galvanite™. Typically, residual heat is sufficient to melt and apply Galvanite™. The high Zinc content provides excellent cathodic protection and the repair blends and bonds with the original Galvanizing.
      • Fabricators and Welders: In the shop and field, Galvanized surfaces are often damaged by cuts and welds. Due to its moldable nature, Galvanite™ can be applied to a substantial thickness in almost any orientation. The solder penetrates deep into cracks and imperfections to provide a seamless protective barrier.

 

Product Variants

Galvanite™ is sold in 14” sticks - .250” (6.4mm) x .300” (7.6mm)

 

Matching Kapp CopperBond™ Flux

Kapp CopperBond™ Flux works with Galvanite™ to remove the oxide layer on Steel and Galvanized surfaces, allowing a strong metallic bond to form between the solder and the base metal. It has an active range of 500-750°F (260-390°C). Note that in most cases, flux is NOT required to get a strong metallic bond between the Galvanite™ and the steel surface.
