Select 80C-Ni2

Low Alloy / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Intended for welding carbon and low alloy steels requiring 80 ksi minimum tensile strength and good impact toughness at subzero temperatures.
  • Smooth spray transfer with virtually no spatter and very little fume emission.
  • Weld beads are flat with good tie-in and minimal slag islands.
  • Typical applications include construction equipment, piping systems, shipbuilding, and colder climate fabrications.
