GalvRepair™ Tin-Zinc-Lead general purpose and Galvanized surface repair solders are economical solders for repairing & joining most metals including Aluminum and Cast Iron. These solders are simple, effective, and easy to use in both manufacturing and field applications. Just like the original Galvanized metal, it metallurgically bonds to the Steel for a seamless, protective barrier.  GalvRepair™ has been the standard for Cast Iron and Galvanized surface repair for over 60 years.

 

GalvRepair™ exceeds performance standards as specified by ASTM standard A780 for repair of Galvanized coatings.

 f

Benefits & Features

GalvRepair™ has been designed to accomplish three important objectives:

  1. Provide excellent cathodic and barrier protection, far superior to Zinc paints and alternative barrier coatings
  2. Allow easy application at low temperatures with any heat source
  3. Provide a cost effective repair for Galvanized coating defects

 

Applications

1.     As a General Repair Solder

  • Low application temperatures prevent loss of properties and minimize distortion
  • Excellent for use in production processes joining large surface areas of Aluminum
  • Build up, fill, or seal Cast Iron, Malleable Iron, Copper, Steel, and Nickel alloys
  • Repair Kirksite and Galvanized surfaces
  • Seal water jackets, compressor housings, gear boxes, liners, and Cast Iron radiators
  • Tinning surfaces
  • Will withstand hydraulic pressure up to 900 psi
  • Paired with Kapp Golden™ Flux for Aluminum and Zinc alloys and Kapp Comet™ Flux for Cast Iron, Copper, Brass, and Stainless Steel alloys.

 

2.     As a Galvanizing Repair Solder

  • GalvRepair™ has a broad slushy range of 450-600°F (232-315°C)
  • When heated, the slurry can be shaped and spread easily to blend seamlessly with the existing Galvanized coating
  • The slurry can be built to a substantial thickness, even on vertical surfaces

 

3.     As A Repair Rod for Hot Dip Galvanizers

  • Small defects in the surface of freshly Galvanized Steel can be easily repaired with GalvRepair™
  • Typically, residual heat is sufficient to melt and apply
  • High Zinc content provides excellent cathodic protection and the repair blends and bonds with the original Galvanizing

 

4.     As A Repair Rod for Fabricators and Welders

  • In the shop and field, Galvanized surfaces are often damaged by cuts and welds
  • GalvRepair’s moldable nature allows it to be applied to a substantial thickness in almost any orientation, penetrating deep into cracks and imperfections to provide a seamless protective barrier
  • Please Note: GalvRepair™ contains 50% Lead. For Galvanizing repairs requiring a Lead-Free alloy, please see the information for Kapp Galvanite™.
