Aluminum Filler Metals

Patent-pending 4943 aluminum MIG wire and TIG cut-lengths are the first aluminum filler metal to be developed and registered by the Aluminum Association and classified by the American Welding SMaxal aluminum filler metalociety (AWS) for wrought commercial applications in more than 40 years. The new product was developed in response to industry demands for a higher-strength aluminum welding solution that also offers the advantages of using a 4043 aluminum filler metal, including excellent corrosion resistance, ease of welding and low hot-cracking sensitivity. It is also suitable for elevated temperature applications, and provides the ability to reduce weld size without compromising strength. 4943 filler metal features an AWS A5.10 classification, in addition to a filler metal material group allocation of F23 from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Due to its ASME F-number allocation, users may be able to weld with Maxal 4943 aluminum filler metal using the same welding procedure as 4043 products. 4943 MIG wire offers precisely controlled wire diameter, cast and helix, high column strength and a surface condition that optimizes feedability. Both products are well suited for welding automotive and motorcycle frames, wheels, furniture, ladders and frames, ship decks, pleasure boats, bicycles, and aerospace applications, as well as for A356.0 casting repairs.
