New "Weldene Process"
at a Great Saving of Both Time and Money. 1
Metals that can be welded with this Process include tin, lead
galvanized iron,copper, nickel, gold, silver, black iron bars and sheets'
cast iron, cast steel, steel castings, tempered and untempered steel
bars and utensils, pot metal, aluminum and other common metals.
Special Uses for Weldene Process
Cracked or broken cylinder water jackets or crank cases can be
repaired permanently with weldene process.
Steel auto body sheets and fenders repaired with weldene |)ro
cess will stay "put" resisting vibration. Copper radiators repaired
with weldene process last longer because of better adhesion, greater
strength, higher melting point, and closer expansion co-efficient.
Scores in auto cylinders can be filled, without pro-heating or
regrinding, which is expensive and unnecessary in most cases.
In many cases, cracked water jackets and scored Cylinders can
be repaired permanently without dismantling motors, thereby effect?
ing a great saving in time and expense.
Valve seats in water pumps in which corrosion has eaten wide
and deep holes can be permanently repaired.
Permanent repairs can be made on bursted water pipes, cast
iron radiators, boilers, tank heaters, hot water tanks, etc.

ers, transmissions, auto bodies, manifolds, in fact any aluminum
part on a car can be permanently repaired.
