ER5356 materials are used mainly for welding aluminum of like composition. This type is also useful if color match is important after anodizing.

  • 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.
