For brazing titanium under 1100 F, binary information formed the basis of selecting two promising ternary basis alloys for development, 1 Ag- Cu-Ge and 2 Ag-Cu-Sn. Melt and flow behavior was favorable with Ag-Cu-Sn base alloys, but work was discontinued because of excessive joint brittleness related to intermetallic films formed on the substrate. Alloys based on the Ag-Cu-Ge ternary also formed intermetallic films, but the joints had intermediate strength which justified evaluation. Average shear strength of lap joints varied from 10,750 psi for aged specimens to 11,900 psi for specimens after brazing at 1100 F. These marginal properties would justify only limited application of the Ag-Cu Ge based alloys.
