Metal-Cored Wire features low manganese emissions.

January 21, 2015

With low manganese levels, FabCOR Element 70C6 helps companies conform to strict environmental regulations. When paired with 75/25 argon and carbon dioxide shielding gas mixture, wire offers 2.0 mL of diffusible hydrogen per 100 g of weldment. Operating with 90/10 shielding, gas blend yields ≤ 4.0 mL of hydrogen per 100 g of weldment. Available in diameters of 0.045, 0.052, and 1/16 in., FabCOR Element 70C6 simplifies silicon removal and is suited for single- or- multi-pass welding. Read More

Flux-Cored Wires enable welding in all positions.

November 10, 2014

Designed for welding low-alloy, high-strength steels such as 4130, Dual Shield II 4130 SR is suited for offshore oil and gas topsides requiring corrosion resistance. Dual Shield II 70-Ni1 H4, designed for use under 75% Ar/25% CO2 gas protection, provides low-temperature toughness in as-welded and stress-relieved conditions. Wire produces diffusible hydrogen levels lower than 4 ml/100 g and resists stress corrosion cracking. Both produce weld bead with almost no ripple and very little spatter. Read More
