Hobart Brothers has introduced its FabCO Hornet gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire — a general fabrication welding wire for mild or low alloy steels that can be used in all positions with either 100% CO2 or a 75% Ar/25% CO2 shielding gas mixture. To increase welding productivity, the wire features an easily removable slag and low spatter levels. Available in 0.045-in., 0.052-in. and 1/16-in. diameters, the wire produces a low amount of welding fumes and a flat bead profile and is suitable for either single- or multi-pass applications. It also meets the optional H8 diffusible hydrogen requirement. The FabCO Hornet welding wire has a tensile strength of between 70,000 and 95,000 psi, and impact strength is 75 ft-lbs at -20 F when used with a mixed shielding gas.
