Any Adhesive to join Aluminum?

Postby elikiP » Wed May 04, 2016 6:41 am

I am planning to assemble the gantry made of aluminum. The section box measures 60 by 100by 6. My first plan was to have it bolted but I may decide to weld it instead. My fear however, is that welding may cause some distortion. Is there a way that I can get past this? Is there any adhesive that can I can use to join the aluminum?

Another thing, am I right to think that welding will cause distortion?

Welding causes a lot of distortion with aluminum than with steel. So yes you are right.

Somebody recommended Durafix brazing sticks to me. Will be buying them for trial. If you have no hurry you can wait for some feedback in a week’s time.
