Weldability of Aluminum Alloys | The Metal Press by
A family of high-strength sheet and plate alloys. 5000 series aluminum alloys are readily welded with 5356 filler metal. However, with stronger alloys such as 5083, 5183, or 5556, filler metals should be used. 6000 alloys: 6000 series aluminum alloys are tricky to weld because they are prone to cracking.
