A356 (4008) Aluminum

Item#: 3F1EBH

A356 aluminum welding wire, including the aerospace-grade variant known as 4008, is a specialized alloy critical for precision welding applications in the aerospace and automotive industries, particularly in A356.0 and 356.0 aluminum castings. Its carefully balanced chemical composition, featuring silicon, magnesium, and trace elements, provides outstanding weldability and exceptional strength.

This alloy's significance is further enhanced by its heat-treatable properties, allowing for post-weld heat treatment processes to achieve desired material properties, ensuring the structural integrity and safety of critical components in aluminum castings.

      HQA Wire Products strongly recommends exercising safe welding practices to protect yourself and others. Electric shock can be dangerous and can kill. Fumes and gases can be dangerous to your health. Arc rays can injure eyes and burn skin.

      Safe Welding Practice include but are not limited to:

      • Do not permit electrically live parts or electrodes to contact skin.
      • Do not allow contact with clothing or gloves if they are wet.
      • Insulate yourself from work and ground.
      • Keep fumes and gases from your breathing zone and general area.
      • Keep your head out of fumes.
      • Use enough ventilation for exhaust and arc or both.
      • Wear adequate eye, ear, and bodily protection.
