Description

4047A Aluminium TIG Rods – 2.4 mm x 2.5 Kg

4047A Aluminium TIG Rods are specialized aluminium rods containing 12% silicon, making them ideal for high silicon alloys and automotive applications. These rods are particularly chosen for scenarios where color matching to the parent material is crucial. With excellent mechanical properties and superior corrosion resistance, they are suitable for silicon-bearing cast aluminium alloys and wrought alloys. However, they are not recommended for fabrications that are intended to be anodised.

Features and Benefits:

  • High Silicon Content: Contains 12% silicon, ensuring compatibility with high silicon alloys.
  • Excellent Corrosion Resistance: Offers superior protection against corrosion.
  • Versatile Applications: Suitable for silicon-bearing cast aluminium alloys and wrought alloys.
  • Color Matching: Ideal for situations where color matching to the parent material is essential.

Common Applications:

  • Aluminium Castings: Suitable for all types of aluminium castings.
  • Repair and Surfacing: Ideal for the repair, surfacing, and construction of various items like window frames, tubes, furniture, engine blocks, and automotive parts.
  • Aerospace Sector: Frequently chosen in the aerospace industry.
  • Brazing Alloy: Used as a brazing alloy, especially on thin gauge materials.
