Coreshield Self-Shielded Flux Cored Wires
Coreshield self-shielded flux core wires range from formulations for single pass welding of thin gauge steel to all-position, multipass welding and applications demanding high impact toughness. Coreshield wires are popular for use in general fabrication, robotic applications, bridge construction and offshore welding.
Coreshield 11 is an all-position self-shielded flux cored welding wire meeting all requirements for the E71T-11 classification.Coreshield 11 is excellent for use on single or multiple pass lap, fillet and butt welds on mild steels in all welding positions.
Coreshield 15 is an all-position self-shielded flux cored welding wire for single pass applications.
Coreshield 40 is a self-shielded flux cored wire primarily designed for multiple pass, horizontal and flat position welding of low and medium carbon steels when toughness is not a requirement.
Coreshield 6 is a high productivity, high deposition gasless flux cored wire. This self-shielded wire is ideal for single or multiple pass weld applications in addition to providing high deposition rates, low spatter, and good penetration. Because of its stiffer weld puddle, Coreshield 6 offers exceptional multi-pass weld stacking characteristics, produces excellent bead appearance and X-ray quality weld deposits.
Coreshield 7 flux cored wire is a self-shielded wire designed for single or multiple pass welding of mild steel when impact toughness is not a requirement.
Coreshield 8 is a self-shielded flux cored wire designed to weld critical structural applications while maintaining excellent arc characteristics and high welder appeal.
Coreshield 8-Ni1 H5 is a self-shielded flux cored wire designed to produce welds with low diffusible hydrogen and robust mechanical properties. It is welder friendly and has excellent all-position welding operability. Using DCEN polarity, it produces nice weld beads by either up-hill or down-hill welding to suit for a wider range of WPS requirements. Coreshield 8-Ni1 H5 is especially suited for making root passes or handling poor fit-up, and it features a diffusible hydrogen content lower than 5.0 ml/100g.
