Tru-Core® FC 71T-12C Welding Wire is a flux-cored, gas-shielded, all-position electrode designed specifically for use with 100% CO2 shielding gas. It is intended for single- and multiple-pass applications, for 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 when compared with other E71T-9C and -12C electrodes.
