Tru-Core® MC 80C-Ni1 is a low alloy steel, composite metal cored electrode for gas shielded arc welding low alloy, and certain carbon, steels requiring tensile strengths in excess of 80 ksi and good CVN values at temperatures as low as -50°F. This electrode is intended to be used with a shielding gas blend of 95-99% Argon/Balance Oxygen, but performs well with 75- 95% Argon/Balance Carbon Dioxide as well. The MC 80C-Ni1 can be used in single and multiple pass applications, both in fillets and groove welds.
Excellent mechanical properties
Nearly slag free welds
Flat bead geometry
Smooth arc transfer
Good low-temperature CVN properties
Better sidewall fusion than solid electrodes
Tru-Core® MC 80C-Ni1 is a good choice to weld steels from ¼” thickness up to heavy plates sections. Typical grades: ASTM A203 Grade A, ASTM A352 Grades LC1 and LC2, and Weathering steel such as ASTM A588. Some examples are:
- Power transmission poles
- Mining machinery
- Construction equipment
TYPICAL APPLICATION SHIELDING GAS BLENDS
95-99% Argon/Balance O2
75-95% Argon/Balance CO2
Flow Rate: 35-45CFH
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.
