5183 ALUMINIUM 3.2MM TIG WELDING RODS – 2.5KG PACKET
AWS A5.10 92 ER5183 EN 18273-S 2004 AL5183
A 2.5kg Pack of 3.2mm Aluminium TIG filler wire. This high tensile strength TIG welding wire is often used when welding 5083 alloy in order to meet necessary as-welded requirements. The aluminium content of these filler rods also includes magnesium and manganese for greater impact resistance and good anti corrosion properties. As a result, it is often used in the making of marine components, drilling rigs, shipbuilding, storage tanks, locomotive, boiler, refrigeration and aerospace industry. 5183 TIG rods are not recommended where elevated temperatures are anticipated this is due to the increased possibility of stress corrosion cracking. Excellent choice for welding both 5000 and 7000 series aluminium. Furthermore, 5183 rods have good ductility properties which allows the finished weld to bend and stretch without compromising integrity or causing stress fractures.
5183 Aluminium TIG Welding Rods 3.2mm – 2.5kg is suitable for use with 5000 and 7000 series Aluminium. Because of its excellent resistance to the effects of seawater one of its main applications is for the production of marine components. However, it can also be used in applications for storage tanks, shipbuilding, locomotive, boiler, refrigeration and aerospace industries.
Suitable for all welding positions, except vertical down.
MATERIAL PREPARATION PRIOR TO WELDING
The parent metal surface must be cleaned and also fully degreased prior to welding. Clean joints with a stainless steel brush.
