Senor low-fuming brass-nickel welding rods are similar to RBCuZn-A, but contain additions of iron and manganese which serve to increase the hardness and strength. In addition, a small amount of silicon serves to control the vaporization of the zinc. The nickel addition assures uniform distribution of the iron in the deposit. This filler metal is used for brazing and braze welding of steel, cast iron, copper, copper alloys, nickel, nickel alloys, and stainless steel and for the surfacing of steel.
