Don't think I'd call them welding rods, but... in the appropriate, non-stress situation they might work. If I had them in the shop and needed to make a repair that I'd consider epoxy for, as in JB Weld or Devcon Titanium Putty then I might be tempted to give one of the rods a shot. Problem with epoxy is the 300 to 600 deg. melting point can cause failure in a lot of applications.

Soldering is all that is.

Soldering was my first thought so I skipped over the first 2 or 3 times I saw the add. But being technologically challenged I just wondered.

Those are aluminum brazing rods. They're available at most any well stocked hardware store probably for a lot cheaper than that link. I've used them for brazing a loose handle bracket on an aluminum pot, but would never try using them on ferrous metal.

I bought some 40 years ago after watching a boardwalk sales guy at the King County Fair. Never used them. My wife bought a Miracle Mop at the same fair. It fell apart.

King County?
For some reason I like that name!
