Select 70C-T

Carbon Steel / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • This electrode is a microalloyed version of Select 70C-6, offering superior CVN toughness values at temperatures as low as -40º F.
  • Intended for single and multiple pass welding of most carbon steels, such as ASTM A36, A285, A515-Gr 70, and A516-Gr 70 and 1% Ni steels.
  • This electrode exhibits a true spray transfer, with virtually no spatter.
  • Minimal slag islands on the weld surface, and these decrease with increased argon in the shielding gas.
  • Smaller diameter electrodes can be used in all position welding with either pulse arc or short circuit arc welding process.
  • These materials would be used in the fabrication of railcars, mining machinery, shipbuilding, earthmoving equipment, pipeline material, and fabrications utilized in cold climates.
