 Print Sheet


CLASSIFICATION: E70C-6M per AWS A5.18, ASME SFA 5.18

Select 70C-10 is a carbon steel, gas-shielded, composite metal cored electrode designed for arc welding at travel speeds far higher than attained with conventional metal cored products.

APPLICATIONS: Select 70C-10 is ideally suited for those applications which require higher travel speeds on thin gauge carbon steels. This product excels in the welding of automotive and truck frames, automotive cradle assemblies, farm machinery and other general purpose welding of light gauge components.

DIAMETERS: .045", .052", 1/16", 5/64", 3/32", 7/64", 1/8"

SHIELDING GAS: 75-95%Ar/balance CO2, 40-55 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Outstanding performance in high speed fillet and lap welds.
  • Travel speeds far in excess of conventional metal cored electrodes.
  • Handles poor fit up.
