Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Can be used with 100% CO₂ or with 75-80% Ar/balance CO₂ shielding gas
  • Lower fume generation rates than conventional E70T-1 electrodes
  • Stable arc transfer over a wide range of welding parameters
  • With both shielding gases, arc transfer is a small droplet transfer with low spatter
  • Ideal for structural welds and general steel fabrications
  • Limited to horizontal and flat fillets, and flat groove welds
