Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Oxide-free wire surface promotes clean, shiny weld beads and good feeding characteristics
  • Intended for welding single and multiple pass fillets and grooves in all positions
  • Can be used with both 100% CO₂ and 75-80% Ar/balance CO₂ shielding gases
  • Arc transfer is a small droplet spray transfer in both shielding modes
  • Ideal for welding carbon steels in structural steel and general fabrication applications
  • Typical applications are shipbuilding, railcar fabrication, and earthmoving machinery
