Coat the steel prior to welding.

Another method many use to successfully weld


aluminum to steel is dip coating, also commonly
referred to as hot dip aluminizing. This simply means
that prior to welding the steel and aluminum together,
the steel is first coated in aluminum.
Once coated, the steel member can be arc welded to
the aluminum member, if care is taken to prevent the arc
from impinging on the steel. A specific technique must
be used during welding to direct the arc onto the
aluminum member and to allow the molten aluminum
from the weld pool to flow onto the aluminum-coated
steel.
Another coating method for welding aluminum to
steel, called brazing, involves coating the steel surface
with silver solder and then welding them together using
aluminum filler alloy.
Please note that neither of these coating-type joint
methods are typically depended on for full mechanical
strength and are usually used for sealing purposes only.

Q Can I weld aluminum to steel with the GMAW or


GTAW welding process?
A While aluminum can be joined to most other metals
relatively easily by adhesive bonding or mechanical
fastening, special techniques are required if it is to be
arc welded to other metals such as steel. Very brittle
intermetallic compounds are formed when metals such
as steel, copper, magnesium or titanium are directly arc
welded to aluminum. To avoid these brittle compounds,
some special techniques have been developed to
isolate the other metal from the molten aluminum during
the arc welding process. The two most common
methods of facilitating arc welding of aluminum to steel
are bimetallic transition inserts and coating the dissimilar
material prior to welding.
Bimetallic Transition Inserts: Bimetallic transition
materials are available commercially in combinations of
aluminum to such other materials as steel, stainless
steel and copper. These inserts are best described as
sections of material that are comprised of one part
aluminum with another material already bonded to the
aluminum. The method used for bonding these
dissimilar materials together, and thus forming the
bimetallic transition, are usually rolling, explosion
welding, friction welding, flash welding or hot pressure
welding, and not arc welding. The arc welding of these
steel aluminum transition inserts can be performed by
the normal arc welding methods such as GMAW or
GTAW. One side of the insert is welded steel-to-steel
and the other aluminum-to-aluminum. Care should be
taken to avoid overheating the inserts during welding,
which may cause growth of brittle intermetallic
compounds at the steel-aluminum interface of the
transition insert. It is good practice to perform the
aluminum-to-aluminum weld first. In this way, we can
provide a larger heat sink when the steel-to-steel
welding is performed and help prevent the steel
aluminum interface from overheating. The bimetallic
transition insert is a popular method of joining aluminum
to steel and is often used for producing welded
connections of excellent quality within structural
applications. Such applications as attaching aluminum
deckhouses to steel decks on ships, for tube sheets in
heat exchangers that have aluminum tubing with steel or
stainless steel tube sheets, and for producing arc
welded joints between aluminum and steel pipe lines.

Coating The Dissimilar Material Prior To Welding: A


coating can be applied to steel to facilitate its arc
welding to aluminum. One method is to coat the steel
with aluminum. This is sometimes achieved by dip
coating (hot dip aluminizing), or brazing the aluminum to
the surface of the steel. Once coated, the steel member
can be arc welded to the aluminum member, if care is
taken to prevent the arc from impinging on the steel. A
technique must be used during welding to direct the arc
onto the aluminum member and allow the molten
aluminum from the weld pool to flow onto the aluminum
coated steel. Another method of joining aluminum to steel
involves coating the steel surface with silver solder. The joint is then welded using aluminum filler alloy, taking care not
to burn through the barrier layer of silver solder. Neither of these coating type joint methods are typically depended
upon for full mechanical strength and are usually used for sealing purposes only.

Aluminum forms very brittle alloys with iron and many other metals. The atoms just
don't play nice together. It's possible to bond aluminum to steel with certain specialized
processes, but not regular welding.
They melt at different temperatures, so you can't weld them. You can braze them
together though.

Because they have different coefficients of thermal expansion, this sort of joint is not a
particularly good one for situations where there are frequent temperature changes. A
mechanical connection is probably a better idea.
