Spanish term or phrase: use of ALEACIONES
Mayor duración de los electrodos y menor riesgo de **aleaciones** y de proyecciones (Welding Manual)

What bothers me here is that I thought the whole point of soldereing was to CREATE alloys (from a layperson's point of view) and not to AVOID them.

No. Soldering differs from welding precisely because it
Explanation:
involves joining a metal to something with another metal (usually tin) without mixing them. For this reason, it employs a lower temperature than welding (acetylene) and electrowelding (very high temperature, generally with one type of metal).

involves joining a metal to something with another metal (usually tin) without mixing them.---> THIS is what you said, yet my manual is about WELDING I believe (that's how I've been translating SOLDADURA so far). Am I wrong? Are there two different words in Spanish???? Could you please do me a big favour and reply to siulach@ireland.com? Ta, Ailish.
