5356 aluminium MIG welding wire is a high-quality, general-purpose wire that is ideal for welding a wide range of aluminium alloys, including those with a high magnesium content. It is made of 5% magnesium, which gives it excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. 5356 aluminium MIG welding wire produces a stable and consistent arc, with low spatter and good bead appearance. It is also suitable for anodising.
