5356 ALUMINIUM 2.4MM TIG WELDING RODS – 2.5KG PACKET
AWS A5.10 92 ER5356 EN 18273-S 2004 AL5356
5356 Aluminium 2.4mm TIG Welding Rods – 2.5kg packet. Designed for use as general purpose aluminium TIG filler wire, by combining 5% magnesium which provides excellent corrosion resistance and unprecedented strength. As a result of its high shear and tensile strength, 5356 Aluminium TIG Rods are a popular choice for most types of TIG welding with aluminium. Furthermore, they are 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). Additionally perfect for use in all welding positions except vertical down.
5356 rods are equally compatible with TIG or oxy/acetylene processes. Although use aluminium brazing and welding flux when working with oxy/acetylene. 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. Use a wire brush between passes for the removal of surface oxide build up accordingly. Suitable for use on plate, pipe, tube and components. Important point to remember, ensure that the parent metal surface is cleaned and fully degreased prior to welding.
Suitable for all positions, except vertical down.
