In order to reduce intermetallic compound formations in brazed joints, a CoFeCrNiCu high entropy alloy was invented and employed to braze SiC ceramics. Results show that SiC ceramics were tightly and strongly brazed with the CoFeCrNiCu filler. Microstructure, phase and shear strength were systematically studied for joints brazed at different temperature. Main compositions were identified as high-entropy FCC, Cu(s, s), Si(s, s), and Cr23C6 phases, regardless the brazing temperature differences. After being brazed at 1453 K, the joint reached a maximum shear strength of 60 MPa, much higher than those brazed with conventional AgCuTi filler. Thanks to high entropy effect of CoFeCrNiCu filler, random solid solution turned out in the seam and benefitted joint quality. The successful use of CoFeCrNiCu high entropy alloy as fillers can expand the application range of high entropy alloys and provide a new filler system to braze ceramics.
