  • Mixing Copper and Aluminum in a Loop?

    Ok I have a question to pose here.
    We have all heard that it's not a good idea to mix metals especially copper and aluminium in a loop.

    I thought the reason was to prevent electrolysis from happening. I was lead to believe this by some pipe fitters I know through work.

    Is this correct?

    Next, this part will pretty much require a response from Daz.
    Also, will DazMode Protector prevent this?
    Or does DazMode Protector allow you to use copper and aluminium in the same loop without a problem?

    And if I am miss understanding the reason for not wanting to mixing these two metals please some one tell me why it is.

    Yes it is correct, and i doubt that Daz`s Protector will prevent it as well. I believe you would need a heavy electroplating to circumvent the corrosion problems. What are you doing ? Some sort of custom block of sorts ? (rhetorical)

      Corrosion suppression will slow down the process, but laws of physics can not be ..... you know.

        Thanks I was just wanting to double check myself on this.
