Select 70C-6LS Plus

Carbon Steel / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Designed to produce cleaner weld deposits with minimal slag islands as compared to conventional metal cored electrodes, requiring less cleanup when multiple beads are to be deposited.
  • Arc transfer is a stable, fine droplet spray.
  • Ideal for welding structural steel, thin plate fabrication, general fabrication, and welding of thin walled tanks.
  • Intended for welding carbon steels such as ASTM A36, A285, A515-Gr 70, and A516-Gr70.
  • “Plus” promotes increased welder performance: higher amperage, increased penetration, and lower spatter.
