Item Details

  • HOBART® FabCOR® Edge™ Gas Shielded Metal Core Carbon Steel Tubular Welding Wire of 0.045" Dia has fewer silicon islands and is capable of higher deposition rates as well as travel speeds than the solid wire. Metal-cored wire suitable for flat and horizontal welding positions gives tremendous gap bridging capabilities and virtually leaves no silicon deposits at weld bead toe lines. It is cost and time effective as it helps save money spent on cleaning prior to painting, coating or plating due to its exceptional low spatter rates. Wire features excellent wetting characteristics and enhances productivity. It helps produce smooth weld beads with uniform fusion and also minimizes burn-through while reducing part rejection. Wire helps to eliminate clean-up time, while minimizing the risk of inclusions. The recommended shielding gas for this wire is a mixture of argon and carbon dioxide, with a minimum of 75% argon and a maximum of 95% argon. It is associated with E70C-6M H4 class of wires and is used in single and multi-pass welding applications. Wire comes in an exacto-pak of 500 lb and is used in robotic and automated welding, non-alloyed and fine grain steels, heavy equipment, agriculture, transportation and mining. This wire has to be stored in a dry, enclosed environment and in its original intact packaging.
