Development of Corrosion Resistant Brazing Sheet for Drawn Cup Type Evaporators Part I: Alloy Development 930148

Extensive work was conducted to develop a corrosion resistant brazing sheet alloy and to apply it to a drawn cup type evaporator in automotive air conditioning system. The items to be investigated included the influence of chemical composition of the core alloy on corrosion resistance, suppression of erosion during the brazing cycle, and enhancement of the brazing sheet formability. Additional investigation was conducted to develop a new corrosion test method on the basis of better understanding of the mechanism of corrosion in the field and to evaluate the corrosion resistance of a evaporator fabricated from the new alloy. This paper, as Part 1, describes the results of alloy development from the metallurgical and electrochemical point of view.
