Build Anything With Flux-Cored Wire

Fri, 12/04/2009 - 3:25am

Hobart Brothers (Chicago, IL) are offering their Fabshield XLR-8 self-shielded flux-cored wire, which excels in structural steel construction with high deposition rates and good impact strengths. The XLR-8 wire is formulated to have low diffusible hydrogen levels—less than 6.7ml per 100g of weld deposit—to ensure it provides superior crack resistance. In addition, the wire has the D designator under AWS a5.20:2005, making it usable for strict AWS D1.8 Demand Critical welds, and it can further improve productivity by replacing AWS 7018 stick electrodes in certain applications.
