GETIG 4043


GAS AND TIG WELDING CONSUMABLES

IDENTIFICATION : ER4043
CLASSIFICATION : AWS/SFA 5.10: ER4043 IS : 5897 : SNG 21

DESCRIPTION :

Getig 4043 is a premium quality Aluminium nominal 5% Silicon alloy rod. Its lower weld deposit strength and excellent crack resistance make it suitable for GAS or GAS TUNGSTEN ARC (GTAW/ TIG) welding of cast alloys.


WELD METAL ANALYSIS RANGE (%)

Si Fe Cu Mn
4.5-6.0 0.60 max 0.10 max 0.50 max
Mg Zn Ti Al
0.05 max 0.10 max 0.20 max Remainder

APPLICATIONS:

Suitable for Gas Welding and Gas Tungsten Arc (GTAW/ TIG) Welding applications of cast mainly(4XX & 6XX series) alloys and wrought (selected 1XXX, 5XXX & 6XXX series) aluminum alloys, except where an accurate colour match is required after anodizing.

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF THE WELD METAL (RANGE) :

Ultimate Tensile Strength : 110 Mpa (approx)

Procedure for Gas Tungsten Arc (TIG) Welding:

Thoroughly clean all areas to be joined. For the butt welding of thick plates, bevel to 650 –750 included angle. Use a Zirconiated tungsten electrode, ground to a tapered blunt point .Use high frequency stabilized alternating current (AC-HF) and Welding Grade Argon. Preheat high sections before welding, heat a spot on the base metal until it shows signs of melting and progressively add the filler rod to the weld pool.
