WAY-way back in the mid-70's I bought a small pack of Alumiweld, works almost the same.

Hard to forget that girls commercial's voice....

Nice part with that is that the alumn doesn't have to be perfectly clean like it does to weld with a TIG.Getting it clean is the hardest part.I'm impressed.Never seen anything like it.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Yes it is strong. The kicker for me was the prop repair, that part takes a lot of abuse.

Of equal thickness, the base material will bend a little easier than the weld material. It also grinds like it's a little harder.
It's a mix of more than just aluminum, each brand has there own formula.
As they say, the new material is harder than the base.

It works very similar to Brazing but at a lower temp.
Hardest part is not melting the base aluminum, too easy to want more heat... (grunt grunt, more heat)
