Hybrid Metal Extrusion & Bonding (HYB) is a new patented joining technology for solid state joining of aluminum. Solid state joining of aluminum components is now possible without loss of strength and severe cracking and corrosion problems.
Traditional 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.
