Description

SIFMIG 5356 – Aluminium MIG Wire – 0.8 mm x 0.5 Kg

SIFMIG 5356 is a general-purpose aluminium MIG wire embedded with 5% magnesium, offering both excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. Its precision layer winding ensures positive uninterrupted feeding, making it ideal for both semi-automated and fully-automated welding systems. This wire is particularly suited for welding magnesium-bearing aluminium alloys and some heat-treatable alloys.

Features and Benefits:

  • Magnesium Infused: Contains 5% magnesium, enhancing corrosion resistance and strength.
  • Precision Layer Wound: Ensures smooth and uninterrupted feeding, suitable for automated systems.
  • Versatile Use: Ideal for welding a range of aluminium alloys and suitable for subsequent anodising.

Common Applications:

  • Welding magnesium-bearing aluminium alloys like 5251 (N4), 5154 (N5), and 5454 (N51).
  • Welding heat-treatable alloys such as 6063 (H9), 6061 (H20), and 6082 (H30).
  • Suitable for plate, pipe, tube, and various components.
  • Welding of forged and cast aluminium-manganese/aluminium-magnesium components.
  • Welding dissimilar aluminium alloy grades with up to 5% Mg.

Material To Be Welded

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). Also 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 degC 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.
