Flux-Cored Wire offers low hydrogen weld deposits.
Press Release Summary:
Mar 14, 2014 - Featuring less than 4 mL of diffusible hydrogen per 100 g of weldment, HobartÂ® FabCOÂ® 712M minimizes chance of underbead cracking and can lessen amount of preheating needed. Gas-shielded flux-cored wire also has low moisture pickup so there is less chance of hydrogen entering weld after exposure to atmosphere. With fast-freezing, easily removable slag, wire is suitable for all-position welding. Product provides tensile strength of 83 ksi in as-welded condition and 80 ksi after PWHT.

Flux-Cored Wire Offers Low Hydrogen (H4) Weld Deposits, Superior "As-Welded" and PWHT Properties
Press release date: Mar 12, 2014
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.
