Magnesium Aluminium MIG Welding Wire

  • AlMg 5356 is typically chosen because of its relatively high shear strength compared to AlSi4043. It's generally used in structural parts of the vehicle.
  • Alloy wheel repair is recommended with this grade of wire due to the increased strength in the HAZ zone.
  • The 5XXX alloy base material, welded with  5356, with a weld pool chemistry greater than 3% Mg and service temperatures in excess of 65°C are susceptible to stress corrosion cracking.
  • AlMg 5356  alloy is non-heat treatable as it weakens the shear strength.
