99 COREWELD® Gas Shielded Metal Cored Wires Coreweld wires have metal powders in the core which gives them the high deposition rates of flux cored wires and the high efficiency of solid wires. The only slag produced by these wires are small silicon islands similar to those produced by solid wires. Argon-CO2 gas mixtures of 75% - 92% Argon/25% - 8% CO2 is the recommended shielding gas. Straight CO2 may be used for some wires. Coreweld wires are now classified as composite wires and are covered by AWS Specifications A5.18 for the carbon or mild steel types and AWS Specification A5.28 for the low alloy types as shown on the following page.
