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.
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
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
75-95% Argon/Balance CO2
95-98% Argon/Balance O2
Flow Rate: 35-50 CFH
All position welding is possible when using the correct shielding gas blends, welding process and welding parameters.
Welding wire should be stored in a dry, enclosed environment and in its originally-sealed package.
