Aluminum and bronze electrode

AMA 1075A

AWS/ASME SFA–5.3 : E 1100
DIN 1732 : EL–Al 99.5
No. of Material : 3.0259


Electrode with special covering for the welding of aluminum silicon alloys and for joining dissimilar aluminum alloys. The electrode should be held perpendicularly to the work-piece and a short arc length maintained.
Plates thicker than 10 mm and larger work-pieces require preheating in the range of 150°C to 250°C. Since slag residues arc corrosive, that must be completely removed from the welded bead. Electrode serves well as consumable in oxyacetylene welding. The covering being hygroscopic, the electrode must be stored in an absolutely dry location, or redried if required.
