Lincoln Electric Provides New UltraCore® Stainless Flux-Cored Wires

Cleveland – Lincoln Electric® offers new UltraCore® stainless steel flux-cored, gas-shielded wires available in commonly used austenitic grades for flat and all-positional applications. The new wires are preferred by welders for the polished appearance of the weld deposits, ease of welding out-of-position and smooth wire feeding.

Sheena Suvak, senior product manager, alloys, Lincoln Electric stated, “Flux-cored wires can provide great deposition at high wire feed speeds; given the nature of welding stainless, we knew ease of use was imperative. The new UltraCore flux-cored stainless wires have a smooth arc characteristic that produces minimal spatter. Our fast freezing slag design creates an easier out-of-position welding experience.”

Designed with the welder in mind, UltraCore stainless steel wires deliver improved weldability characteristics, including: 

  • Easier out-of-position welding
  • Smooth arc with minimal spatter
    • Polished weld bead appearance
    • Reduces post-weld cleaning
  • Wide operating range

The upgraded packaging includes the following: 

  • Precision layer wound
    • Steady spool payoff
    • Consistent wire feeding
  • Vacuum-sealed foil bag
    • Moisture-resistant package
  • New larger 33 lb spool package size
    • Less changeover
    • More arc time

Testing indicates UltraCore wires exhibit significantly greater arc stability over the length of the weld. The weld beads have less discoloration compared to the competition.
