SIF No 27 5356 ALUMINIUM 1.6MM TIG WELDING RODS – 5KG PACKET
SifAlumin No 27 5356 1.6mm Aluminium TIG rods supplied in a 5kg pack.
A general purpose aluminium rod containing 5% magnesium that has excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. Suitable for welding magnesium bearing aluminium, alloys such as 5251 (N4), 5154 (N5), 5454 (N51), and also heat treatable alloys 6063 (H9), 6061 (H20) and 6082 (H30). Can be used in TIG or oxy/acetylene. If used in oxy/acetylene, use with Sif No.36 aluminium brazing and welding flux.
Suitable for all positions, except vertical down.
Suitable for welding forged and cast aluminium-manganese/ aluminium-magnesium components and dissimilar aluminium alloy grades containing a maximum of 5% Mg. Can also be used to weld components which are to be subsequently anodised. Pre-heating up to 1200C may be necessary, subject to material size and thickness. Wire brushing between passes is recommended to ensure removal of surface oxide build up. Suitable for use on plate, pipe, tube and components. Ensure that parent metal surface is cleaned and fully degreased prior to welding.
Shielding Gas: Argon or Argon/Helium
