    • LDescription
      • 5356 aluminum MIG welding alloy is an all-position, non-heat treatable MIG wire used to weld the 5XXX series alloys when 40,000 psi tensile strength is not a requirement. Alloy 5356 is a very good all-purpose wire. It is the most widely used of all aluminum filler metals. Common applications are welding of boats/ships, bicycles, trucks, pressure vessels and automotive parts.


      • 5356 aluminum/silicon GMAW (MIG) welding alloy
      • Designed for welding heat treatable base alloys, specifically 6XXX series alloys
      • Lower melting point and more fluidity than 5XXX series filler alloys
      • Low sensitivity to weld cracking with 6XXX series base alloys
      • Suitable for sustained elevated temperature service, i.e. above 150°F (65°C)
      • All position, except vertical down welding
      • Gray (post anodized) color


      • Liquidus 1175°F (635°C) (as welded 5086 base plate)
      • Solidus 1060°F (571°C) (as welded 5086 base plate)
      • Tensile Strength 39,000 psi (as welded 5086 base plate)
      • Yield Strength 19,000 psi (as welded 5086 base plate)
      • Density 0.096 lbs./cu.in. (as welded 5086 base plate)
      • Elongation in 2" 17% (as welded 5086 base plate)
