ER5183 can be used on type base materials 5083 and 5456. Not recommended for sustained elevated temperature service. Assure proper storage to avoid contamination.

  • The proper choice of aluminum filler metal mainly depends on the base metal properties to be achieved andwelding technique. Post weld cracking, corrosion resistance and behavior under elevated temperature also needto be taken into consideration.
  • Cracking usually can be minimized by choosing a filler metal alloy of higher alloy content then the base metal.
