Select 730C

Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • This product is optimized for superb arc transfer characteristics with 100% CO₂ shielding gas, with the transfer mode being small droplets and resembling the molten metal spraying onto the welding puddle.
  • All-position weldability, with minimal spatter and excellent bead geometry.
  • Select 730C is well suited for structural steel welding, shipbuilding, barge construction, and general plate fabrication.
