ALLOY: EN ISO 18273 -S Al 4043 (AlSi5)
AWS A5.10 -ER/R 4043
FLUX: EN 1045 FL10
Flux-cored Aluminium rod, ready to use, requiring no additional flux for welding 1xxx, 3xxx, 6xxx Aluminium alloys by flame. Thanks to the controlled quantity of flux, it’s possible to weld without interruptions and weak points, with no losses and thus no waste. The welder is no more longer forced to dip the hot end of the filler rod in the flux jar. The melting batch can be constantly checked during welding.
Used for oxy-fuel (OFW) welding of 1xxx, 3xxx, 6xxx alloys. Suitable also for welding cast aluminium and wrought alloys containing up to 7% Si. The residual of the flux must be removed by washing after welding. After use, the end of the rod should be sealed again by either melting or pinching itself so that the flux core remains unexposed. The recommended rod gauge should exceed plate thickness by 1 mm.
