Top customer reviews
They have a slight smut on them from the drawing process so I'd recommend giving them a good wipe and using a little acetone. They clean up really well. I do this out of habit with ally rods anyhow to avoid contamination screwing up a weld. Remember aluminum in general likes to be clean and tidy for good welding.
As far as flow and the actual welding, I have no issues with them.
As far as strength and mechanical properties, well it's stronger than the base material I've been working with in many cases. I've used it for reinforcement beads, wear edge build up, and crack repair on a lot of thin wall ally pipe. I've used it on a few other things without anything special to note. Just makes a good solid weld if you do your part.
That being said, in those 4 rods I experienced unbearable amounts of weld contamination. I've tried cleaning them with everything I have...they may have to be tossed. I even grabbed some soft aluminum wire for flower wrapping and welded with it, to ensure it wasn't my method or base material, it welded cleaner than this filler.
I will give it a few more chances, and will update this review if the filler warrants reappraisal.
