Commonly used on marine components, drilling rigs, cryogenics, railroad cars, storage tanks and unfired pressure vessels. Base metals commonly welded include 5083, 5086 and 5456 to similar base metals or to 5052, 5652 and 5056.
Aluminium filler metal which contains alloying elements 4.3-5.0% Magnesium, 0.5-1.0% Maganese as well as Chromium and Titanium.
The post-anodizing color tint is white
Approximately melting range is 1075°-1180°F and the average tensile strength as welded is 41,000 psi
MIG welding is an arc welding process that joins metals by heating them with an arc. MIG and flux cored welders provide benefits over other welding methods for both seasoned and new welders. The welding system generates an arc between the metallic and also a consumable electrode, called the mig welders cable.
The operator concentrates on directing the MIG welder gun in the joint and appropriate movement. Many MIG welders may additionally flux cored weld.
MIG Welding is also referred to as Gas Metal Arc Welding. It is a frequently used high deposition rate welding process where the MIG wire is always fed from a spool. MIG is a semiautomatic welding procedure.
Externally supplied gas or gas mixtures provide shielding for mig welders. Common MIG welding is also referred to as short circuit transfer. Metal is deposited only when the wire actually touches the work. No metal is transferred across the arc.
