ZINC DISTRIBUTION IN VACUUM BRAZED ALCLAD BRAZING SHEET

Vacuum brazing technology is currently capable of producing aluminum automotive heat exchangers such as radiators and heater cores. With heavy gauges there is sufficient retained zinc in the cladding to provide galvanic protection to the core and, in the case of light gauge materials, increasing the zinc content of 7072 from 1% to 3% provides sufficient zinc to the post-braze cladding to give galvanic protection.
