Summary

Since the development and the interest of magnesium based materials have increased recently, there is a demand for appropriated joining technologies. A fluxless soldering technology for magnesium alloys was developed at the Institute of Composite Materials at the University of Technology Chemnitz. Solders applied posses working temperatures of about 340 – 360 °C. Because of these low soldering temperatures there are no restrictions concerning the alloy composition of the base materials to be joined. Also highly alloyed magnesium alloys can be soldered as it was shown using the alloy AZ91.

The microstructures, the mechanical and corrosion properties of the joints have been examined and some of the results are presented in the following.
