PURPOSE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION
5% silicon flux coated aluminum electrodes. Multi-purpose electrodes for welding cast, rolled and stamped aluminum and aluminum alloys. For welding aluminum and aluminum-based alloys such as Al-Si, Al-Mg, Al-Mg-Si, Al-Mn-Cu. Typical application: loading docks and loading racks, window and door frames, gearbox housings, engine cylinder blocks, electric buses, electrical switch boxes, and mounting supports.

Clean the welding area from dirt and oxide film. Preheat the heavy parts. When connecting a thick metal with a thin piece, preheat a heavier piece. Welding is performed by using the upper portion of the amperage range. Feed the electrode quickly and move fast maintaining a very close arc gap. Reduce the current while the welding is performed and as the base metal absorbs heat.
Recommended Current: DC Reverse (+).
