tig welding | tig rods - aluminium

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).

An Aluminium alloy with 5% silicon giving excellent flow characteristics and penetration. Suitable for welding duralumin, cast (LM25) and wrought alloys 6063 (H9), 6061 (H20) and 6082 (H30). Weld will discolour if anodised.

A pure aluminium (99.5% min) shaved rod which produces a ductile weld equal in strength to that of the base metal. The weld is capable of being hammered, stretched and drawn into shape without fracture.

Aluminium rod containing 12% silicon. It has good mechanical properties, excellent corrosion resistance. Suitable for silicon bearing cast aluminium alloys and wrought alloys. Do not use if fabrication is to be anodised.

Magnesium rod with 6% Aluminium suitable for welding magnesium aluminium alloy castings of similar composition, crankcases, gearboxes, sumps, wheels etc.

Aluminium alloy containing 5.3% Magnesium: all elements are closely controlled for optimum weld strength. Normally used on 5083 (N8) and for military applications.

Special aluminium alloy containing 5% Magnesium and 0.75% Manganese, for improved weld strength.
