GM 4043

GAS METAL ARC WELDING (MIG) WIRE

CLASSIFICATION : AWS/SFA 5.10: ER4043, DIN1732 : SGAlS:5

CHARACTERISTICS :

GM 4043 is a premium quality Aluminium- nominal 5% Silicon alloy suitable for the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) of a wide range Aluminium alloys. GM 4043 is used extensively for joining as well as for repair welding of many aluminium alloy castings.

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 GM 4043 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.
