Select ER70S-6

Carbon Steel / Solid / Gas Shielded


Features

  • A carbon steel, solid “MIG wire” electrode with copper coating, for gas shielded arc welding.
  • Higher level of deoxidizers enhances welding over hot rolled and rusted/oxidized plate material.
  • Excellent feedability and welding.
  • Intended for welding carbon steels, such as ASTM A36, A515, A516, and A572.
  • Smaller diameters (1/16” or smaller) can be pulse welded in all positions.
