The process is similar to brazing in that you are not heating the parent metal to the point of melting but that's where the similarity ends. SiBro is an incredibly strong bond. It's as strong as steel and has better elongation. If done right, there should be a lot less heat distortion. This method is being used in auto manufacturing on high stress areas of cars where exotic steel alloy gussets are located. The bond is superior and the HAZ is minimal.
