Select 717

Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Designed to operate with high argon blends of 75-95% Argon/balance CO₂
  • Spatter is nearly eliminated with the high argon blends employed with this product
  • Arc transfer is a small droplet, spray-like mode
  • Intended for single and multiple pass welding of most carbon steels, such as ASTM A36, A285, A515-Gr 70, and A516-Gr 70
  • Ideal for light gauge, as well as standard plate fabrication and structural steel welding
  • Typical applications include rail cars, structural steel, and applications involving light gauge steels
