Advantages of Tru-Core® Welding Wire

The Tru-Core® 0.045” FC71T-12C welding wire is a reliable choice that is designed specifically for use with 100% CO2 shielding gas. Intended for single- and multiple-pass applications, this versatile welding wire can be utilized in both in-position and out-of-position welding. The metal transfer in the arc is small-droplet in nature, resulting in a smoother arc and lower spatter levels. Our welding wire is the excellent choice for those who are looking to elevate their welding experience to surpass their expectations.
