AlcoTec R 5356 or Alloy 5356 is the most widely used welding alloy and can be classified as a general purpose type filler alloy.  It is typically chosen because of its relatively high shear strength. The 5XXX alloy base material, welded with Altigweld 5356, with a weld pool chemistry greater than 3 % Mg and service temperatures in excess of 65 °C are susceptible to stress corrosion cracking. The alloy is non-heat treatable.

A Characteristic of the 5Xxx series of Alloys is their susceptibility to stress corrosion cracking when the Weld Pool chemistry is greater than 3% Mg and there is exposure to Prolonged temperatures in excess of 150° F. Special Alloys and Tempers are often required to overcome this problem. Contact AlcoTec for assistance in Alloy and temper selection when elevated temperature service is a concern.
