Item Details

  • HOBART® FabCOR® .052" 1000 lb Drum is a metal-cored Carbon steel tubular welding wire with fewer silicon islands than other metal-cored wires. On clean material, weld bead toe lines are almost completely free of silicon deposits. The weld bead face is virtually free from silicon island deposits. Together with exceptional low spatter rates, Edge will save time and money spent cleaning prior to painting, coating, or plating. The recommended shielding gas is a mixture of argon and carbon dioxide, with a minimum of 75% argon and a maximum of 95% argon. Arc characteristics improve with richer argon gases while spatter and fume levels decrease.


  • Virtually no silicon deposits at weld bead toe lines
  • Reduces clean-up time, minimizes risk of inclusions
  • Excellent gap bridging capabilities
  • Minimizes burn-through, reduces part rejection
  • Excellent wetting characteristics
  • Assists in producing smooth weld beads with uniform fusion
  • Capable of Higher deposition rates and travel speeds than solid wire
  • Increases productivity
