AlMg 5

type 
Mig filler metal for welding Aluminium Magnesium alloys.
applications 
Filler metal for welding Aluminium alloys with maximum 5% Magnesium. This Magnesium alloyed Aluminium wire, thanks to its excellent corrosion resistance and its high mechanical properties is mainly used in ship yards, car and railway industry. Thicker sections should be preheated (150°C) prior to welding.
Properties 

Excellent weldabillity and good mechanical strength combined with good corrosion resistance are typical for this alloy. The weld deposit is free from porosity due to the special shaving process and cleaning method during production. AlMg5 is one of the most popular types within the range of aluminum alloys and covers a weight range of alloys.
