CLASSIFICATIONS: E100C-G per AWS A5.28, ASME SFA 5.28

Select 100C is a composite metal cored electrode designed for single and multiple pass welding of some carbon and certain low alloy steels, in the flat and horizontal positions, where a minimum tensile strength of 100,000 psi is required in the deposited weld metal.

APPLICATIONS: Select 100C is well suited to joining low alloy, high strength steels such as HY-80, A710 and A514. These materials are used in shipbuilding, earthmoving equipment and mining machinery. An ideal choice for weldments where distortion must be minimized and de-slagging is not desirable.

DIAMETERS: .035", .045", .052", 1/16"

SHIELDING GAS: 95-98% Ar/balance O2, 75-95% Ar/balance CO2, 35-50 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Good low temperature toughness.
  • Virtually no spatter emission.
  • Pure spray arc transfer.
  • Greater productivity and sidewall fusion than solid wire.
