1. Because of the stress corrosion cracking of the welded joint of aluminum alloy when the temperature is above 65 degrees, the electrode is not used in the structure of aluminum alloy in such a temperature environment.
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.
