EN ISO 18273 S Al 5356 (AlMg5)
BS 2901 5356 (NG6)
Melting Point 640°C
Ult Tensile Strength 250 N/mm²
Material to be Welded
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 1200°C 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..
