High quality 5356 grade aluminium TIG welding wire. Contains 5% magnesium. 5356 is the most widely used welding alloy and can be classified as a general-purpose filler alloy. It is typically chosen because of its relatively high shear strength.
The 5356 alloy base material has a weld pool chemistry greater than 3% Mg and service temperatures in excess of 65??C. 5356 gives a high strength weld deposit with very good crack resistance. Corrosion resistance is very good especially in a marine atmosphere. Typical all weld metal composition - Si <0.25%, Mn 0.15%, Cr 0.1%, Fe <0.4, Mg 5.0, Al bal. Welding current DC(+)
