Select 720 Low Mn

Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Superb weldability, designed for ease of welding in all positions
  • Total manganese (Mn) content is significantly reduced compared to standard E71T-1/-9 electrodes.
  • Mechanical properties meet industry requirements and exceed competitive low manganese type wires of same AWS classification.
  • Intended for use with 75-85% Ar/balance CO₂ shielding gas.
  • Excels in general fabrication, structural steel, and shipbuilding applications where ASTM A36, A515-gr 70, and A516-gr 70 type materials are being used.
