Tru-Core® FC 71T is a flux cored, gas shielded, allposition electrode intended to weld carbon steel, as well as certain low alloy steels, where a minimum tensile strength of 70,000 psi is required. Tru-Core® FC 71T is intended for single and multiple pass welding using 100% CO2 or 75-80% Argon/balance CO2 mixtures, for welding in all positions. Major advantages of this electrode include deep penetration, smooth stable arc transfer, low spatter levels and a slag system specially formulated for a high melting point. This provides a very quick-freezing slag.
- Flat bead geometry
- Easy slag removal
- Excellent feedability
- Smooth arc transfer
- Excellent mechanical properties
- 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
Tru-Core® FC 71T can be used for welding most carbon steels and certain low alloy steels. It is ideal for welding gauges varying from 10-gauge sheet metal to heavy plate sections.
Some examples are:
- Structural Steel
- Heavy Equipment
- Railcar Construction
- Mining Machinery
- General Fabrication
TYPICAL APPLICATION SHIELDING GAS BLENDS
75% Argon/25% CO2
Flow Rate: 35-45 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.
