Tru-Core® 0.045” FC71T-CG Flux-Cored Welding Wire 33lb Spool

The Tru-Core® 0.045” FC71T-CG Flux-Cored Welding Wire in a 33lb Spool is a gas-shielded, all-position electrode designed specifically for use with 100% CO2 shielding gas. The small-droplet metal transfer in the arc creates a smoother arc and reduces spatter levels compared to other E71T-1C and -9C electrodes. This type of wire is the ideal choice when you need stable arc features, unbeatable feedability, all-position welding capability, and exceptional mechanical properties.
