Item Details

  • HOBART® Excel-Arc™ 71 Gas Shielded Flux Core Carbon Steel Tubular Welding Wire of 1/16" Dia is made for use with a CO2 or a 75% Ar/25% CO2 gas mixture to make fabrication easier in any position. Rutile-type, flux-cored wire withstands cracking in severe applications and gives low hydrogen weld deposit in a spray-type transfer of weld metal with less smoke and deep penetration. Wire with fast freezing slag bridges poor fit-up and offers enhanced weld toughness for critical welds at low temperatures. It increases productivity while minimizing part rework/rejection and gives good out-of-position capability. Wire with low spatter and high-deposition rate, makes cleaning up a snap while reducing the risk of inclusions. It exceeds the AWS impact strength necessity of 27 J at both -20 deg F and -40 deg F. Wire will have 84000 psi tensile strength, 77000 yield strength, 48.80 J CVN at 0 deg F and 28% elongation when welded using CO2. Wire will have 90000 psi tensile strength, 83000 yield strength and 28% elongation when welded using 75% Ar/25% CO2. It is associated with E71T-1C H8, E71T-1M H8, E71T-9C H8, E71T-9M H8 class of wires and is used for mild and low alloy steel applications as well as single and multiple pass applications. Wire comes in an exacto-pak of 600 lb and is used in structural steel, general fabrication as well as heavy equipment industries. This wire has to be stored in a dry, enclosed environment and in its original intact packaging.
