Hobart Brothers Offers Self-Shielded Flux-Cored Welding Wire for X80 Pipeline
-High tensile strength and low temperature CVN impact toughness
-Self-shielded product, requires no external shielding gas
-'J' classification provides exacting impact toughness compared to wires with 'G' designations
TROY, Ohio. December 1, 2008-To ensure consistent chemical and mechanical properties when welding on critical X80 pipeline applications, Hobart Brothers offers its HobartŪ Fabshield X80 self-shielded flux-cored welding wire. The Fabshield X80 creates welds with high tensile strength and excellent CVN (Charpy V-Notch) impact toughness that remain ductile at low temperature.
Classified under AWS (American Welding Society) A5.29, class E81T8-Ni2 J, the Fabshield X80 wire provides a typical tensile strength of 94,000 psi and a yield strength of 84,000 psi. The wire's 'J' designation guarantees that the welding wire meets the strict requirements for low temperature CVN impact toughness as determined by AWS, and ensures more exacting properties than competitive E81T8 wires classified to only 'G' designations. Specifically, Fabshield X80 welding wire provides CVN impact values from 107 ft/lbs at -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-29 degrees Celcius) to 96 ft/lbs at -40 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 degrees Celcius). It is available in 5/64-inch diameter in a variety of packages and weights.
Fabshield X80 welding wire features a fast-freezing slag that is nearly self-peeling, making it ideal for welding in all positions and helping to reduce post-weld cleaning time. This versatile wire can be used for either single- or multi-pass welding on fillet, lap or deep groove butt welds, especially those exposed to low temperatures.
