Standard Arc® S-6 is a mild steel filler wire containing a high combined total of manganese and silicon. The wire produces a smooth, uniform welding arc, which minimizes weld spatter and results in excellent bead appearance and high operator appeal.

CHARACTERISTICS

Standard Arc® S-6 supports your GMAW welding operations.

Cast of 35 in. (.88m) to 55 in. (1.3m) and Helix below 1 in. (25.4mm) improve feedability and provide accurate wire positioning

High Silicon content reduces the molten metal surface tension, resulting in flatter bead profiles

APPLICATIONS

Short circuit, globular, spray transfer and pulse welding

Automatic or semi-automatic welding

Welding steel with mill scale, rust or oil

Single to multi-pass weld applications

Applications requiring up to 88, 800 psi tensile strength

Welding rimmed steels

High current welding with oxygen rich atmospheres

Low welding heat applications

Higher travel speed welding

TYPICAL APPLICATION SHIELDING GAS BLENDS

100% CO2

75-95% Argon/Balance CO2

95-98% Argon/Balance O2

Flow Rate: 35-50 CFH

WELDING POSITIONS

All position welding is possible when using the correct shielding gas blends, welding process and welding parameters.

STORAGE

Welding wire should be stored in a dry, enclosed environment and in its originally-sealed package.
