MIG-MAG solid wires range for aluminium alloys

FILALU AlMg5 is a 5356 type aluminium solid MlG welding wire, supplied precision layer wound, depositing Al-5Mg weld metal.

Product advantages

✔ High yield strength
✔ High resistance to corrosion (including seawater)

Suitable for use with Ar, or Ar+He mixed shielding gases.
FILALU AlMg5 is used for the welding of Al-Mg alloys and Al-Mg-Zn alloys. The wire is also suitable for the welding of dissimilar aluminium alloy grades containing up to 5%Mg and components which are to be subsequently anodised.

FILALU AlMg5 is the most popular aluminium welding wire, because of its high yield strength and high resistance to corrosion, including seawater. Solid wire that deposits an alloy with 5% Mg. Suitable for welding Peraluman 3.5 and 5 and Anticorodal 11 alloys.

It meets the classifications:

  • EN ISO 18273: S Al 5356 (AlMg5Cr(A))
  • AWS A5.10: ER 5356
