5356 Aluminium Tig Welding Rods 2.5kg


A general purpose aluminium rod containing 5% magnesium that has excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. Suitable for welding magnesium bearing alloys such as 5000 series structural alloys and 6000 series extrusions. Not suitable for welding cast aluminium (use 4043 grade instead).

5356 is also suitable for components that need to be anodized after welding.

BS:2901 5356 (NG6)
EN ISO 18273 S Al 5356 (AlMg5)

Parent Materials: 5000 series alloys (AlMg) with Mg<4%, 6000 (AlMgSi) alloys when anodised. Cast alloys of AlSi-Mg type. In practice the most versatile & universally used filler metal.
