Suspended deck is normally made of alloy 5083 which is welded with a GMAW or GTAW process.
A number of characteristics determine the best filler metal choice for a given base material or combination of base materials.
Among these are:
• Freedom from hot cracking
• Weld metal ductility
• Weld metal corrosion resistance
• Weld metal shear strength in fillet and lap joints
• Filler wire feedability
• Weld color match with parent metal for applications requiring post-weld anodizing
