Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9962667A1] A method of bonding two metallic elements together. The method comprises the steps of placing the two elements adjacent to one another, with a metallic interlayer therebetween to form a bonding region and applying an external load to the bonding region. The region is heated such that the temperature of the region increases at a rate sufficient to minimise oxidation of the elements and the thickness of any oxide layer formed on the surface thereof.
