No, you need to use a shielding gas when welding aluminum. 100 % argon is most commonly used with aluminum.

No, you must have shielding gas to weld aluminum. And it has to be 100% argon - carbon dioxide and trigas are only for welding steel. The thread on a bottle of argon is different than a bottle of carbon dioxide or trigas, but you can you use the same flow/pressure regulator by purchasing an adapter to thread on the bottle of argon. The adapter is a lot cheaper than buying a second flow/pressure regulator.

I believe you need argon gas. I don't know of a flux core aluminum wire
