I can't find the original thread but I said I'd report back on the
type of aluminum MIG wire I've been using very successfully without a
The reel simply contains the label Al5Mg -- which I assume to mean
that it has 5% magnesium.
I couldn't see a manufacturer name but I found an Italian website (I
was pretty sure the wire was Italian in origin) which confirms that it
has 4.8% magnesium.
It also says that it's an alloy designed for welding 5000 series or
for welding 5000 and 7000 to 5000 series and the resulting weld is
suitable for anodizing.
