|AWS A5.10: ER5356
||EN ISO 18273: S AL 5356 (ALMg5Cr(A))
Aluminum rod ER5356 is widely used for the argon-arc TIG welding of shaped sections and metal structures of Al-Mg alloys with magnesium content up to 5%. It is also used for structures, which are subjected later to anodizing. This alloy is widely used in ship- and automobile building, railway track construction, in welding containers for storage and transportation of liquid and bulky products, pressure vessels.
Welding should be done on AC, or on devices that support pulse-arc mode. Protective gas: Ar (argon), Ar / He mixture (argon / helium). Weld surfaces should be cleaned of oxide film and degreased.
Alloys of Al-Mg system are characterized by the combination of strength, good plasticity, weldability and corrosion resistance, even in a sea water, but are intended to corrosion cracks while operating temperature is more than 65°С. This alloy is most widely spread among the aluminum-magnesium alloys.
