SuperGlaze® 5556A

MIG (GMAW)

AWS: ER5556A

Aluminum Welding Wire

DETAILS

SuperGlaze 5556A is a high strength Aluminum Magnesium Manganese alloy. It is commonly used for welding high strength base materials like 5083 and provides good strength on 6XXX base materials.

Features

  • • High Magnesium alloyed wire
  • • The elements are controlled to obtain increased weld strength over the 5356 alloy
  • • Good ductility and improved crack resistance
  • • High Corrosion resistance for Marine applications

Welding Positions

  • All except vertical down

Shielding Gas

  • I1 : Inert gas Ar (100%), #E : Argon/Helium Mixtures, Flow rate :14.2-23.6 l/min
