Item Details

  • Tru-Core® FC 71T-12C is a flux cored, gas shielded, all-position electrode, designed specifically for use with 100% CO2 shielding gas. FC 71T-12C is intended for single and multiple pass applications, for both in-position and out-of-position welding. The metal transfer in the arc is small-droplet in nature, resulting in a smoother arc and lower spatter levels when compared with other E71T-9C, -12C electrodes. The slag characteristics allow for both fast freezing and good coverage of the weld, which produces a flatter, more uniform bead geometry in all position welds. Microalloying of the weld metal provides enhanced CVN impact values.


  • Excellent bead appearance in all positions
  • Designed for 100% CO2 shielding gas
  • Easy slag removal
  • Smooth, spray-like arc transfer
  • Excellent feedability
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Fast-freezing slag promotes excellent out-of-position results


  • AWS A5.20: E71T-1C H8, E71T-9C H8, E71T-12C H8
  • ASME SFA 5.20: E71T-1C H8, E71T-9C H8, E71T-12C H8


  • Patented forming, feeding and drawing equipment
  • Consistent strip-to-core ratio
  • Precise thermal treatment that controls the type, amount and uniformity of surface oxides on the wire
  • Consistent diffusible hydrogen levels


  • Tru-Core® FC 71T-12C can be used for welding most carbon steels and certain low alloy steels. It is ideal for welding thicknesses varying from 10 gauge sheet metal to heavy plate sections, where all position welding capability, stable arc characteristics and excellent mechanical properties are needed. Some examples are:
  • Structural Steel
  • Shipbuilding
  • Railcar Construction
  • General Fabrication
