New Carbon Steel, Flux Cored Electrode Boosts Welding Performance and Profitability

by
New carbon steel flux cored electrode

Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced a carbon steel, all position, flux cored electrode specially developed to raise welding performance and increase productivity. Encore is the new, made-in-America electrode that features a positive arc transfer that is deep penetrating, smooth and stable, with less smoke and spatter than imported electrodes. The fast freezing slag assures incomparable out-of-position weldability but, unlike most E71T-1 wires, Encore provides better arc starting and produces excellent horizontal fillets. The bead is exceedingly shiny and well-washed, with straight toe lines.

The economical Encore’s outstanding welding characteristics are well suited for all types of general purpose, carbon steel welding applications such as structural steel, construction equipment, farm machinery and railcar fabrication where the following steels may be employed; ASTM A131, A285, A515 Gr 70 and A516 Gr 70.
