    If you are passing destructive tests OK....But....Could use more flow and fusion at the edges ....Ripples could be closer together.....I would use 5356 because The lift goes in the water...4043 turns gray and dull after exposure to water ... especially ocean water...I'm being highly critical here but that is what you get when you post a picture like that......Easy for me to pass judgement while I sit at the computer..I'm retired ......Good Luck

    Default GMAW Aluminum

    Well I'm the lead fabricator,not the engineer. The print calls for 4043 so I use 4043. I thought it looked good,as did the engineer and the end customer.

    It does look good man. Most of the people who criticise on here are on here all day..... And all night...... And usually they have a very long list of very expensive machinery under every post. So go figure, you can't make money welding if your sitting in front of a computer all day, so their probly just full of it or they have debt up to their necks. IMA go with their full of it

    Job well done. Satisfying the engineer is all that counts.

    4943 is just released last November at the Fabtech show in Las Vegas. The sample spool that I was given flows like butter and qualifies for use under your 4043. The small amount of magnesium provides some exothermic action to enhance penetration. I think 4943 would be a nice alternative to your 4043.

    The designing on aluminum makes it attractive and more wonderful.
    Its shining gives the effects like shinning and polished gold.
