Unique Material Combinations

Please note:

Materials listed here as ‘compatible’ represent materials that have been successfully joined. If a combination of materials does not appear here, it may only indicate that it has not been tried; not that it is impossible.

Sampling of commonly welded materials by MTI:

Aluminum > Stainless Steel
Aluminum > Titanium
Carbon Steel > Monel
Steel > Aluminum-bronze
Steel > Copper
Titanium > Copper
Titanium-aluminide > Inconel
Can your material be forged?
