Select 80C-W

Low Alloy / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Intended for welding of weathering type structural steels such as ASTM A242 and A588, where the coloring and corrosion resistance are required.
  • These steels are typically used in bridges, transmission towers and poles, and some building construction.
  • Pure spray transfer with nearly no spatter present.
