SuperGlaze® HD 5556

MIG (GMAW) Wire

AWS: ER5556

Aluminum Welding Wire

DETAILS

SuperGlaze 5556 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

  • • Designed for heavy duty applications
  • • Reduced shavings and improved feedability
  • • High Columnar strength in welds
  • • Increased amounts of magnesium and manganese for excellent corrosion resistance
  • • Provides higher tensile strengths for welding of higher strength 5XXX alloys

Welding Positions

  • All

Shielding Gas

  • 100% Argon Argon / Helium Mixtures Flow Rate: 30 - 50 CFH for Argon
