Distribution of Zn and Interfacial Microstructure of Braze-Welding CMT Joints between Aluminium and Galvanized Steel Sheets
Distribution of Zn and interfacial microstructure of braze-welding CMT joints between aluminium and galvanized steel sheets were researched. The results showed, except the gas porosity contains a little Zn, the other areas of fusion zone almost have no Zn. Temperature plays a decisive role in the distribution of Zn. The content of Zn is higher in the dendritic crystal than the intergranular part. The Zn coat adjacent to the joint is almost evaporated entirely. The Zn coat of steel sheet in the heat-affected zone around the joint is badly destroyed, and the corrosion resistance of the joint will decline. There are FeAl3 intermetallics and Al-Fe-Zn triphase solid solution formed at the interface.
