> 5183 aluminum tig welding rods

5183 aluminum tig welding rods with a magnesium content of 5% and higher manganese content,it has good corrosion resistance, high strength, heat resistance, good ductility. After the welding of the welding seam is still white,it can provide a good color for the welded joints.For some of the alloys, the strength of the welded joints is slightly higher than 5356 aluminum tig welding rods.

1. The rod shall not be used in aluminum alloy structures where the operating temperature is greater than 65 degrees, because at this temperature the welded joint will crack and corrode. 
2. Welding should be strict and clear the edge of the welding of the oxide film and oil, otherwise it will cause welding seam welding and cause the hole, slag and other defects.
3. Welding can be used for holding molten metal plate, in order to ensure the weld forming, and avoid hot crack.
