Description

SIFMIG 5356 – Aluminium MIG Wire – 1.6 mm x 6.5 Kg

SIFMIG 5356 is a precision layer wound aluminium wire, ideal for both semi-automated and fully-automated systems. It is a general-purpose solid aluminium wire infused with 5% magnesium, known for its excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. This wire is designed to cater to a range of welding requirements, especially for magnesium-bearing aluminium alloys and heat-treatable alloys.

Features:

  • High Magnesium Content: Contains 5% magnesium, enhancing corrosion resistance and strength.
  • Precision Layer Wound: Ensures positive uninterrupted feeding, making it suitable for automated systems.
  • Versatility: Can be used for welding a variety of aluminium alloys, including magnesium-bearing and heat-treatable types.
  • Preparation Flexibility: Suitable for pre-heating up to 1200°C depending on material size and thickness.
  • Clean Welding: Wire brushing between passes is recommended to remove surface oxide, ensuring a clean weld.

Common Applications:

  • Magnesium Bearing Alloys: Such as 5251 (N4), 5154 (N5), and 5454 (N51).
  • Heat Treatable Alloys: Including 6063 (H9), 6061 (H20), and 6082 (H30).
  • Diverse Use: Suitable for welding on plate, pipe, tube, and components. It can also be used for welding forged and cast aluminium-manganese/aluminium-magnesium components, and dissimilar aluminium alloy grades with up to 5% Mg. Additionally, it’s apt for components that will be anodised post-welding.

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.
