Hybond technology has made solid state joining of aluminum plates and profiles possible without a softened HAZ and accompanying strength reduction. Traditonal fusion welding of aluminum leads to 50% HAZ strength reduction. It also leads to the formation of a fusion zone (FZ) with low cracking and corrosion resistance.
The new revolutionary HYB technology solves this by allowing solid state welding at low temperatures using filler metal additions.
Benefits of using Hybond technology include:
-Increased load-bearing capacity
-Cracking & corrosion resistance
Hybond AS was awarded SINTEF's technology prize in 2009.
