Welding: Two metals are melted together.
Brazing: Two or more materials are joined by the use of a third, dissimilar material, such as braze alloy or silver solder.
In brazing the greatest strength is achieved by a chemical reaction between the braze alloy and the metals on either side. To do this the materials need to be in close contact with no interfering layer.
See our article on Cleaning Steel Before Brazing for more on the subject.
