Advantages of Tru-Core® Welding Wire

Designed for strength, the Tru-Core® FC71T-12C offers great performance, especially for situations in which a 70,000 psi minimum tensile strength is required. It works effectively in both single- and multi-pass applications and offers all-position welding. The FC71T-12C promotes high deposition rates, reducing welding time and increasing overall productivity. Additionally, the wire's minimal spatter and excellent bead appearance contribute to the creation of precise and aesthetically pleasing welds.

Shielding Gas Blends for Tru-Core® Flux-Cored Welding Wire

For shielding gas blends, Tru-Core® FC 71T-12C can be used with a variety of options, such as:
