Select 720HP

Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Designed for single & multiple pass welding of carbon steels, such as ASTM A36, A285, A515-Gr 70, & A516-Gr 70.
  • Developed to weld with 100% CO₂ and 75-80% Ar/balance CO₂.
  • The arc transfer is a small droplet spray with an argon blend and small to medium droplet with CO₂.
  • Microalloying and slag adjustments provide enhanced CVN toughness values at lower than required classification temperatures.
  • Well suited for structural welding and general fabrication.
  • A good choice for fine grained, high toughness steels, such as ASTM A572 and A633.
  • Typical applications are mining machinery, draglines frames, railcar construction, and shipbuilding.
