These directions also apply to pot metal, white metal and pewter. The puddling technique is used. Clean the base metal thoroughly and clamp the piece securely. File or grind the area to be repaired, then clean with a stainless or brass brush. Heat the metal and rod together and blend. Use a backing when possible to protect your piece. Since Ultra Bond and the base metal melt at similar temperatures you will be welding, the rod and the base metal at the same time. If you have not worked with die cast before, practise on a scrap piece before you begin.
Galvanised Steel and Zincalum
Follow the cleaning, thinning and welding steps described earlier. You are not welding steel, but rather the coasting. This will not work on rusted metal.
Weld similar to aluminium. Heat base metal, tin Ultra Bond and weld. If Ultra Bond foams on base metal the magnesium content is too high and will not weld. Keep heat low. Use neutral burning flame on all mag alloys.
