Sold in 16 pound spools, 1/16" PowerWeld ER5356 is a general-purpose type aluminum alloy that should be considered for welding 5000 series aluminum base metals.
Typically chosen for its relatively high shear strength as a welding filler wire, ER5356 also offers excellent corrosion resistance when exposed to salt water.
PowerWeld ER5356 aluminum welding wire is triple degreased to provide the highest degree of cleanliness and luster. The PowerWeld "shaved finish" produces absolute uniformity in diameter along with excellent surface smoothness, ensuring uninterrupted feeding in both automatic and semi-automatic welding operations.
PowerWeld also employs unique cleaning methods to remove all traces of oxides, lubricants and acids and packages each spool to maintain its cleanliness, preventing contamination.
