Aluminum Alloy, Welding Wire 7.0Si - 0.38Mg - 0.10Ti (4008 or 356)
|Publication Date:||1 April 2003|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of two types of welding wire.
This wire has been used typically as filler metal for gas-tungsten-arc or gas-metal-arc welding of aluminum alloy castings having similar composition and requiring, in the weld zone, comparable response to heat treatment, properties, and corrosion resistance to those of the castings, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Wire supplied to this specification is classified as follows:
Type 1 - As extruded and sized
Type 2 - As drawn
Unless a specific type is ordered, either type may be supplied.
