Fabshield 23 Wire Welds on Multiple Materials

TROY, Ohio.  October 20, 2008-For general purpose welding fabrication and repairs on thin gauge mild or galvanized steel and coated materials, Hobart Brothers offers its versatile Hobart® Fabshield® 23 self-shielded flux-cored welding wire. The Fabshield 23 produces a soft, smooth arc with good wetting action, also making it easy for welding operators to use on multiple welding applications and material thicknesses.  Because it requires no shielding gas, the Fabshield 23 wire can be used outdoors or in drafty conditions and it will still provide excellent welding performance.

Like many other Hobart Brothers’ welding wires, the Fabshield 23 wire features low spatter levels to help minimize post-weld cleanup. It is suitable for single-pass welding applications, especially for fillet and lap welds, and welding operators can use it in all welding positions, which minimizes the need to order and store additional wires for different applications.

Hobart Brothers offers the Fabshield 23 welding wire in .030-, .035-, .045-, 1/16- and 3/32-inch diameters in multiple packaging weights.

Hobart Brothers is dedicated to the highest level of Performance Welding™.
