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

Press Release Summary:

In addition to minimizing risk of underbead cracking, FabCO® 750M provides low diffusible hydrogen weld deposits (3.5 mL per 100 g of weldment) on high-strength applications. Minimized spatter and facilitated slag removal reduce interpass as well as lessen instances of inclusions, while arc characteristics let operators produce smooth weld beads with uniform fusion. Offered in .045 and 0.052 in. dia, wire exhibits impact strength at temperatures down to -60°F and tensile strength of 121 ksi.

New Wire for High-Strength Applications Offers Low Hydrogen Weld Deposit, Minimizes Cracking Risks

TROY, Ohio. — Hobart has introduced its new FabCO® 750M gas-shielded flux-cored wire. The wire was designed to provide low diffusible hydrogen weld deposits (3.5 ml per 100 g of weldment) on high-strength applications and minimize the risk of underbead cracking. It is especially well suited for welding API 5L Grade X100 pipe or as an overmatch on API 5L Grade X80 pipe. Other applications for FabCO 750M wire include high-strength, low-alloy steels; ABS EQ 56, 63 and 70 steel; and jackup rig construction.

FabCO 750M wire features low spatter levels and an easy-to-remove slag to reduce interpass and post-weld cleanup, and lessen instances of inclusions. The wire also provides excellent arc characteristics, allowing operators to produce smooth weld beads with uniform fusion.

FabCO 750M wire offers high-impact strengths at temperatures as low as -60 degrees Fahrenheit (-50 degrees Celsius). It operates with a shielding gas mixture of 75 to 80 percent argon and a balance of CO2, and provides a tensile strength of 121 ksi (using a 75/25 shielding gas mixture). The wire can be used for welding in all positions.

Hobart offers FabCO 750M wire in .045-inch and 0.052-inch diameters.
