HOW TO WELD ZINC BASED METALS WITH DURAFIX ROD
How to weld Potmetal, Diecast Zinc or Whitemetal part with Durafix
Vee the broken edges to about 45 degrees, clean the surface of any plating or scale back from edges of the vee 1/8 of an inch.
 
 
Flow the Durafix into the Vee in the Potmetal, Diecast Zinc or Whitemetal part
Heat until it starts to flow. Turn flame parallel to surface and with side of flame, hold at this heat. Heat welding rod to same temperature. Now with both parts and welding rod at this temperature, touch rod to the break and rod will flow into vee, thoroughly fusing the parts. 
Kick the melted Durafix rod into the Vee until it is filled
Repeat operation until break is completely filled. Be sure to kick rod into weld to break down skin resistance as filler rod will lay on surface and will not fuse if only heat is applied.
 

HOW TO BRAZE ALUMINUM WITH DURAFIX ROD
Vee out, heat and brush the area to be Durafixed
Brush surface to be repaired thoroughly under heat to break up surface oxide.
 
 
Heat the area to be welded until the Durafix flows onto the surface
Heat the parts hot enough to flow without the aid of the flame, thoroughly tinning the surface.
 
Brush through the melted Durafix to break up the remaining oxide layer
Brush Tinned surface under heat, thoroughly filling the open pores.
 
 
Fill the Vee after coating the surface with Durafix
With sides thoroughly tinned, flow in enough rod to fill the Vee. Be sure filler fuses with the tinned surface without melting the base metal. 

HOW TO REPAIR A PROPELLER
Wire brush throughly to break up surface oxide and remove paint.
 
Heat hot enough to flow rod without the aid of the flame. Tin the flat (not beveled) side and attach a temporary support of carbon or copper. 
Turn and tin beveled side, building out the blade slightly larger than its original size. Grind damaged edges to a 45 bevel. Pitch propeller to standards. 
Let cool, then grind to proper standards. Results? ... a well prepared wheel without porosity for you to balance and paint!

General Notes

This rod will work with propane, mapp, butane, oxyacetylene or any fuel source as long as the material is brought up to 732°F. The rod will not work if heated directly. You must heat the material that you are working on to 732°F and then apply the rod. The material must be cleaned with a stainless steel brush (included) because the rod will not adhere to stainless steel. The rod will not adhere to the material being brazed if it is cleaned with a steel or other type brush.
