Muggy weld for welding aluminum

This product was recommended for welding aluminum, pot metal and white metal on a hot rod forum. Looks like it could be the answer for certain tricky aluminum repairs. Anyone tried it?

Pure aluminum is weldable. 2024 alloy like our older Airstreams is not.

But this looks more like brazing. May be good for hole filling and non high stress parts repair for those expensive or non-replaceable cast and sheet items.

This is brazing not welding. You may be able to use this as a skin repair but there is no "joining" of material as in welding... Only bonding. Welding involves localized coalescence of the materials being joined and in most instances a filler metal.

Here is a discussion of a similar product from a few years ago.

In the demo it appears to be more of a brazing or soldering operation. The material being welded does not appear to melt. They go by the color of the flux, when it burns or turns color it is ready to weld.

I have used a similar product to braze the screen door when the weld broke 4 years ago. Its still holding. I don't have any welding experience to try much else. I've only soldered electronics & plumbed with copper pipes.
