NS National-Arc™ Silver-Glide™ NS 101 Copper-Free Welding Wire
NS National-Arc™ Silver-Glide™ NS 101 is a premium copper-free solid filler metal designed to provide the best quality welds and user satisfaction with ER70S-3 and EM13K welding wire. Manganese and silicon content are carefully balanced to ensure maximum deoxidation, flat bead profiles, and low-spatter welds.
Its unique properties as a copper-free welding wire make it a versatile choice for many different GMAW and MIG welding operations. The welding wire has a cast of 35” (0.88 m) to 55” (1.3 m) and a helix below 1” (25.4 mm), resulting in easy feedability and precise wire positioning. It is manufactured in our Stillwater, Oklahoma, plant, an ISO 9001:2015 facility. ISO 9001:2015 quality standards guarantee excellence in every aspect of the welding wire’s production, providing strong arc starts, stability, and feedability. By producing minimal spatter, no copper flaking, and moderate de-oxidizers, NS National-Arc™ Silver-Glide™ provides great weld appearance and post-weld cleaning with consistent usability and dependable results.
