Select 101-K3C

Low Alloy / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Spray-like transfer with low spatter and good welder appeal
  • Fast freezing slag facilitates welding in all positions
  • Ideal for welding of HY-80, certain grades of A514, and HSLA-80 steels.
  • Typical applications for these steels include crane fabrication, trailer construction, and other structural applications involving higher strength materials.
