SuperGlaze® 5183

MIG (GMAW) Wire

AWS: ER5183

Aluminum Welding Wire

DETAILS

Aluminum Magnesium Manganese alloy commonly used for higher strength welding of 5XXX and 6XXX base materials. It’s has higher columnar strength and uses less amperage for the same WFS as 4XXX filler metals.

Features

  • • Designed for applications where higher strength is required
  • • For 5083 and 5456 base materials
  • • Excellent corrosion resistance ideal for Ship building and marine applications

Typical Applications

Welding Positions

  • All except vertical down

Shielding Gas

  • 100% Argon Argon / Helium Mixtures Flow Rate: 30 - 50 CFH
