0.045" FabCO XL-550 Gas-Shielded Flux Cored Tubular Welding Wire, 33 Lb Spool, 70,000-90,000 PSI Minimum Tensile Strength(AWS Spec)
Formula XL-550 Gas Shielded Flux Core Carbon Steel Tubular Welding Wire of 0.045" Dia produces smooth weld beads with uniform fusion and is ideal for all position welding. Rutile-type, flux-cored wire withstands cracking in severe applications and gives low diffusible hydrogen weld deposit. Wire with fast freezing slag and low hydrogen levels minimizes surface preparation requirements and enhances productivity. Wire with high-deoxidizer formulation has good arc characteristics and is designed to allow excellent Charpy V-notch impact values at lower temperatures. It gives high-quality welds even when welded through rust, mill scale and some primers. Wire reduces the risk of under bead cracking and is ideal for various heavy weldments requiring high-quality, low-hydrogen welds. Wire can be used as a substitute for 7018 in many areas of applications. It helps to reduce clean-up time and the risk of inclusion. Wire comes in a vacuum-packed spool of 33 lb and is used in shipbuilding, storage vessels, structural steel as well as earth moving equipment industries. This wire has to be stored in a dry, enclosed environment and in its original intact packaging.
