Bonding not brazing

One alternative to brazing when repairing and maintaining bronze equipment is to use Devcon’s special bronze putty, which will also bond securely to brass, ferrous metals, and concrete.

The product is a two-part, bronze-filled epoxy that can be readily mixed and applied on-site to effect repairs, patches and rebuilds in areas where brazing would be undesirable or impossible.

Mixed in a 9:1 ratio, the epoxy has a pot life of 45min, curing to 85 Shore hardness. Normal tools are used for machining, drilling, or tapping.
