I have no idea what the paste he uses in the video, someone on here might know, it would solve the problem of how
to solder the aluminium tab
When I saw the video [with sound off] I thought he was clamping glass plates to the cell. Do you think that's accurate? I was just wondering if metal wouldn't be better, or if the improvement isn't necessary. In thinking that out loud, I realized there's a much higher risk of shorting if you use metal, so I would avoid that.

The gray paste is a special product for aluminum in which the tin is already included.
This may be the so-tinned Aluableiter as the cells with any normal solder. be soldered to a Lötplatine.
Since the Verzinnvorgang runs quickly when the arrester is not hot cell input!
Solder-It Alu Paste No!
You can buy it in a few days in ebay.de

Actually, you can use normal motor oil or even cooking oil (like canola oil) when soldering aluminum. As was pointed out above the problem is that aluminum oxidizes within microseconds of exposure to the air and you want to keep this from happening. You need to immerse the aluminum in the oil and then clean it with a wire brush or something similar. Some people just keep brushing the aluminum with the soldering iron (or gun) tip while applying the solder. Of course, you MUST keep the aluminum, the soldering iron tip, and the solder within the layer of oil.
Now there is available solder with a special flux that can be used to solder aluminum. However, this is not always available. But, virtually everyone has some sort of suitable oil "handy" and that makes soldering aluminum relatively easy.
I remember that I have read someone has succeeded in soldering aluminium under oil bath.
