Dual Shield T-5 is a basic slag flux cored wire that produces crack resistant, highly ductile weld deposits. The small diameter wires, such as .045 & 1/16" diameters can be used out-of-position. The arc characteristics are globular but can be improved with the use of argon mixes. Dual Shield T-5 is recommended for medium to heavy fabrication of many mild steels where superior toughness and crack resistance are required. It is a good choice for mild steel or when being joined to quenched and tempered low alloy high strength steels. The weld metal analysis is similar to an E7018 or E7018-1 low hydrogen electrode.
