Gas-Shielded Flux-Cored Wire offers low hydrogen weld deposits.
Welding Equipment & Supplies

Gas-Shielded Flux-Cored Wire offers low hydrogen weld deposits.

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...
