GETIG 4047


CLASSIFICATION : AWS/SFA 5.10: ER4047

DESCRIPTION :

Getig 4047 is a premium quality Aluminium- nominal 12% Silicon alloy suitable for the Tig Welding (GMAW) of a wide range of cast and wrought Aluminium alloys. Getig 4047 is used extensively for the repair welding of many aluminium alloy castings. It’s lower weld deposit strength, and excellent crack resistance make it suitable for the Tig welding of cast (mainly 4XX & 6XX series) and wrought (selected 1XXX, 5XXX & 6XXX series ) aluminium alloys, except where an accurate colour match is required after anodising.

APPLICATIONS:

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

Storage and Handling Recommendations:

  • Store in a heated room with uniform temperature control and, if possible, with humidity control as well.
  • Store unpackaged wires for long periods in a heated cabinet at 10-150C above ambient temperature.
  • Hold Getig 4047 wire in the welding area for 24 hours before unpacking to allow its temperature to equalise with that of the surrounding area.
  • Use dust covers on open wire feed units to protect wire during welding.
