CBS News’ Jeff Deeney reports that new, ultra-light aluminum alloy, known as brazed aluminum, is used in a number of products.
The new material, called brazorite, is a key component in the new steel found in aluminum-nickel alloy pipes, steel tanks and some cars.
The alloy, which Deeneie says is made by combining braze steel with aluminum and nickel, is lighter than steel.
It’s the same alloy used in the high-performance steel found inside many sports cars, and it’s used in aircraft engines.
The company behind the brazerite-aluminum alloy says the material is a sustainable, low-cost alternative to steel that can be used in virtually any applications, from the aerospace industry to the automotive industry.
And it’s the first such material to be used to make steel.
Deeneay says brazoring aluminum can be made by melting a metal into a powdered form and mixing it with a solvent.
The mixture is then pressed into a powder form and used as a filler.
The resulting alloy can be cut with a blade and then baked in a hot oven to form a steel.
This process creates an alloy that is not only lighter but more durable than other steel, Deeneye says.
Deaneie reports that a company in New Jersey is working on making brazers for aluminum-carbon composites.
The process involves heating aluminum and carbon, like carbon monoxide, to temperatures of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and then cooling the mixture.
The cooling process lowers the carbon content of the alloy, allowing the bazers to be produced at higher temperatures.
