A commercial vanadium-containing active filler metal has been sued to join alumina to itself and to a low-expansion iron-nickel alloy. Joint strengths were determined by 4 point bend testing at room temperature and high temperature. Strengths of joints aged in air at high temperatures were also determined. Alumina-to-Alumina joints showed strengths comparable to strength of the monolithic parent alumina. The lower strengths of the alumina-to-iron-nickel alloy joints were attributed to presence of residual stress.
