Gas: 3 TIG: 2 MIG: 1 Resistance welding: 6 Spot welding: 3
Typical filler materials (EN ISO18273): AlMg5Cr(A), AlMg4.5Mn0.7(A), AlMg4.5MnZr.
The alloy exhibits a good recovery of mechanical properties after welding, up to 90%
of the original values of the base metal (depening on welding conditions).These
properties can be achieved after natural aging for a prolonged period or after an
additional artificial aging treatment2.
