Other
With a combination of good formability and high post braze strength, FA7911 is highly suitable for the use in headers and plates. The defined composition of silicon and magnesium makes FA7911 easy to braze in the CAB process, while showing good ageing behaviour after brazing. The addition of titanium to the product also enables a very good corrosion protection. In typical header and plate dimensions it easily exceeds 60 days of SWAAT life without perforations. FA7911 exhibits excellent corrosion performance with lateral corrosion behavior in SWAAT (ASTM G85). The corrosion attack is proceeding horizontally and prolonging the time to perforation. The addition of titanium improves the corrosion behavior of the bulk material by hindering pitting corrosion.
