Ideal for structural welding in the field, this self-shielded flux-cored welding wire handles all welding positions at high currents to increase productivity. Low hydrogen weld deposits and high impact strength at low temperatures resist cracking in severe applications.
This gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire produces minimal spatter and offers easy slag removal for faster cleanup and more productivity. Excellent out-of-position capability, good impact toughness and cracking resistance make it a great choice for shop structural welding.
This gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire is tolerant to changes in stick-out, making it ideal to compensate for gaps. Flexible amperage and voltage ranges offer easy operation, while high deposition rates improve productivity.
Low moisture absorption makes this stick electrode a great choice for structural welding in the field. Productivity is enhanced with effortless starts, minimal spatter, stable arcs in all welding positions and easy slag removal.
Higher deoxidation elements allow this metal-cored wire to better penetrate mill scale, reducing pre-weld prep and providing more time to focus on higher productivity.
This cored submerged arc welding wire improves deposition rates and offers a broader penetration profile than solid wire at comparable welding parameters for higher productivity and less risk of burn-through.
The versatility to join a wide range of non-alloyed steels with a variety of fluxes makes this submerged arc solid welding wire an ideal all-purpose product. Its copper coating aids in smooth wire feeding for consistent weld quality.
This agglomerated neutral flux provides good deoxidation and weld bead appearance, along with excellent resistance to cracking to minimize rework. Easy slag removal reduces cleanup and lowers the risk of slag inclusions.
High current-carrying capacity allows this agglomerated neutral flux to be used with high-productivity parameters, while a moderate basicity balances good weldability with desirable mechanical properties.
