Item Details

  • HOBART® FabCO® 86R Gas Shielded Metal Core Carbon Steel Tubular Welding Wire of 0.045" Dia produces welds with consistent weld quality and has high deposition qualities of a flux-cored wire plus the high efficiencies of a solid wire. Gas shielded, metal powder, metal-cored wire suitable for flat and horizontal welding positions gives low diffusible hydrogen weld deposit and outstanding welding performance. Wire with virtually no slag coverage minimizes the risk of hydrogen-induced cracking. Wire provides high deposition rates as well as efficiencies and has smooth arc characteristics. Wire with low smoke, low spatter and extremely smooth operator appeal promotes versatility and minimizes clean-up time. The enhanced operator appeal, assists in maintaining consistent weld quality. It features a higher level of de-oxidizing elements to handle mill scale welding applications. Wire is great for both CV as well as pulsed welding and can also be used for robotic welding. The deposition rates in excess of 20 lb/hr and deposition efficiencies of 95% and greater can be obtained with the wire's high-quality, Gas Shielded metal-core. Wire has a minimum 70000 psi tensile strength, 58000 yield strength and 22% elongation in 2". It promotes versatility in procedure development and provides an outstanding high-production performance. It is associated with E70C-6M H4 class of wires and is used in single or multiple pass applications with argon/CO2 shielding gas. It is also an excellent choice for high production and automatic applicators. Wire comes in a spool of 33 lb and is used in shipbuilding, railcar and general fabrication.
