Pure aluminum is a relatively soft, durable, lightweight, ductile and a malleable metal. Being resistant to atmospheric corrosion, it is strong at low temperatures. Alloying additions of magnesium and silicon improve its strength and are very common.
Aluminum and its alloys are used extensively in industry including aerospace, for the manufacture of fuselages and wings, automotive, for lightweight engines and bodywork, and construction, for roofing materials and window frames.
Alumaxx® Plus weld process gas has been specifically designed as the only gas that you need for the high-quality welding of aluminum and its alloys. If you aim for the most exacting standards, you will need a dedicated gas such as Alumaxx® Plus. A multipurpose weld process gas, it is specially designed for MIG and TIG welding aluminum and its alloys across all material thickness.
