ER4043 - MIG Aluminum Welding Wire - 16 Lb

  • Sale
  • Regular price $97.00


  • ER4043, commonly referred to as “AlSi5", has a 5% silicon and is the oldest and one of the most widely used aluminum welding wires for general purpose applications
  • Less sensitive to weld cracking than other aluminum alloys and the 5% silicon content lowers the melting point, increases the fluidity of the weld puddle, and leaves a bright shiny weld deposit.
  • ER4043 is commonly used for welding grades 6061, 6063, 5052, 3004, 3003, and cast alloys 356.0, 357.0, 413.0, and 443.0 to name just a few.
  • The melting range is 1065 °F– 1170 °F, density is 0.097 lbs/in3, and post anodizing color is gray.
  • You will receive 1 x 16-Pound Spool of ER4043 MIG Wire. Available wire diameters: 0.030", 0.035" and 0.045"
  • MIG solid wire with aluminum 5% silicon
  • For welding heat-treatable base alloys and more specifically, 6XXX series alloys
  • USES: Automotive components such as frame and drive shafts, Bicycle frames
  • Shielding Gas: 100% Argon, Argon / Helium Mixtures
  • 16 Lb. Spool
