Abstract:
Transition materials consisting of steel clad aluminum have been used to join aluminum and steel. This technique allows joining by resistance spot welding since the clad transition material allows the actual transition from one metal to the other to occur at the clad bond interface. Welding studies show that in the recommended range of weld parameters, high strength joints are produced. A wide range of corrosion tests have been used to determine the durability of these joints in automotive environments. Results show that the use of transition material in joining aluminum to steel or EG steel eliminates galvanic corrosion.
