Stoodys "SOS" wires offer the productivity and efficiencies of continuous welding wire and the convenience and low cost of open arc (gas-less) welding. Welding can be done indoors or outdoors - even in moderate wind or draft conditions. Weldability is excellent, producing weld deposits that are sound and clean with flat to slightly convex bead shape.
- Stoody® "SOS" wire deposits have lower percentage of penetration than GMAW deposits at the same current levels which means less dilution and distortion.
- Stoody® "SOS" wires can be used as a direct replacement for solid stainless wires or electrodes of the same grade both in fabricating and overlay applications.
- Stoody®s "SOS" wires do not require specialized equipment.
- For best results, a contant voltage, direct current power source is recommended.
