Select 700GS

Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Self Shielded


  • SELECT 700GS is a carbon steel, flux cored electrode for use without an external shielding gas and should be welding with DCEN (straight polarity).
  • The arc transfer is smooth and stable, with virtually no spatter emission. This “soft” arc transfer minimizes burn-through on thin gauge material.
  • This slag system enables the electrode to weld in all positions and to make welds at high speed.
  • Intended for welding thin-gauge carbon steel, ranging from 3/16 ” to 22 gauge, applications are limited to single-pass weldments.
  • This product is designed to weld quite effectively over galvanized material and can be used on certain aluminized surfaces as well.
  • Select 700GS is an ideal choice for applications such as lap and butt welds on galvanized sheet metal, repair of automobile sheet metal, welding ductwork, and joining of galvanized roofing sheet metal.
