Select 70C-6 Plus

Carbon Steel / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Tubular construction promotes faster travel speeds and better fusion than solid GMAW electrodes.
  • High level of deoxidizers enhances welding over hot rolled and rusted plate material.
  • Intended for welding carbon steels, such as ASTM A36, A515, and A516
  • Can be pulse welded in all positions (call in for parameters).
  • The versatility of a slag free cored wire makes this ideal for general fabrication, structural steel welds, and thin section applications, such as automotive components and hot water heaters.
  • “Plus” promotes increased welder performance: higher amperage, increased penetration, and lower spatter.
