3439-00-165-4177 (1/8X 14)
sections, preheat to 400F. Maintain short arc.
3439-01-139-3498 (5/32X 14)
Hold electrode almost perpendicular to work or
3439-00-246-0541 (3/16X 14)
slightly in direction of travel. Back whip at crater.
Chip slag before quenching. Use Marcoloy #500.
POSITION: Flat, horizontal, or vertical
POLARITY: DC Reverse
Keep rod dry; flux will absorb moisture from the air

Primary: Arc welding of all weldable grades of
aluminum in extruded, plate or sheet, and sand and die
castings. Use for welding aluminum landing mats
when GMA is not available or dirt, moisture, or wind
make GMA impractical.
Secondary: Use with torch for welding aluminum.
To make an aluminum paste flux, break flux off rod,
