Tru-Core® FC 70T is a flux cored, gas-shielded electrode, designed for single and multiple pass welding of carbon steels in the flat position and for horizontal fillets. FC 70T is suitable for welding most carbon steels requiring a minimum tensile strength of 70,000 psi. This electrode is designed to operate with 100% carbon dioxide shielding gas. The rutile-based slag system promotes a smooth arc transfer and extremely easy slag removal.

CHARACTERISTICS

PRODUCT FEATURES:

  • Great choice for deep groove welds
  • Flat bead geometry
  • Easy slag removal
  • Low spatter
  • Excellent feedability
  • Smooth arc transfer
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Stable current transfer at the contact tip

MANUFACTURING ADVANTAGES:

  • Patented forming, feeding and drawing equipment
  • Consistent strip-to-core ratio
  • Precise thermal treatment that controls the type, amount and uniformity of surface oxides on the wire
  • Consistent diffusible hydrogen levels
  • Consistent distribution of core ingredients

APPLICATIONS

Tru-Core® FC 70T is designed to weld structural steel when the work is positioned, where increased productivity and high deposition rates are a priority.

Some examples are:

  • Earth Moving Equipment
  • Machine Tool Bases
  • Structural Steel
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Railcar Construction
  • Mining Machinery
  • General Fabricating

TYPICAL APPLICATION SHIELDING GAS BLENDS

100% CO2
Flow Rate: 35-45 CFH

WELDING POSITIONS

Flat and horizontal 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.
