Select 90C-D2

Low Alloy / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Designed for welding certain high strength, low alloy (HSLA)steels where a minimum tensile strength of 90 ksi is required.
  • Can be used in place of ER90S-D2 solid wire, resulting in less sensitivity to subsurface porosity, elmination of lack of fusion (“cold lap”), and increased travel speeds.
  • Can be used to weld pressure vessel steels such as ASTM A 302 Gr B, and castings such as A49, A291, and A735.
