April 9, 2012 - Designed for optimal weld quality on offshore drilling rig applications and jack-up rig fabrication, FabCO® 712M welding wire has less than 4 ml diffusible hydrogen per 100 g of weldment. This decreases chance of underbead cracking and can lessen requisite preheating, while degree of moisture pickup minimizes chance of hydrogen entering weld after exposure to atmosphere. Supplied in 0.045 and 0.052 in. dia, wire has tensile strength of 83 ksi in as-welded condition and 80 ksi after PWHT.

New Wire Offers Low Hydrogen (H4) Weld Deposits, Superior "as-Welded" and PWHT Properties

Press release date: March 28, 2012

TROY, Ohio. - Hobart Brothers has introduced a new welding wire to improve weld quality, particularly on offshore drilling rig applications and jack-up rig fabrication. The Hobart® FabCO® 712M gas-shielded flux-cored wire features less than 4 ml of diffusible hydrogen per 100 g of weldment, which decreases the chance of underbead cracking and can lessen the amount of preheating needed. The wire also has a very low moisture pickup, so there is less chance of hydrogen entering the weld after exposure to the atmosphere.

FabCO 712M wire features a fast-freezing, easily removable slag that makes it suitable for all-position welding and minimizes interpass and post-weld cleaning. The wire also offers low-temperature Charpy V-Notch (CVN) impact strengths (-40 to -75 degrees Fahrenheit [-40 to -60 degrees Celsius]), resulting in superior mechanical toughness properties in both the "as-welded" and post-weld heat-treat (PWHT) conditions. FabCO wire provides a tensile strength of 83 ksi in the as-welded condition and 80 ksi after PWHT.

Hobart Brothers recommends using a shielding gas mixture of 75 to 80 percent argon with a balance of CO2 with FabCO wire, and offers it in 0.045- and 0.052-inch diameters on 33-pound spools.
