Tru-Core® FC 71T-CG Welding Wire is a flux-cored, 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.
Tru-Core® FC 71T-CG Flux-Cored Welding Wire
NS ARC's Tru-Core® FC 71T-CG delivers unmatched performance and weld strength as a reliable flux-cored welding wire designed to meet and exceed your expectations when using E71T-1C H8 and E71T-9C H8 wire. The small-droplet metal transfer in the arc creates a smoother arc and reduces spatter levels compared to other E71T-1C and -9C electrodes. The slag characteristics of Tru-Core® FC 71T-CG enable better flow and wetting of the weld, resulting in a flatter and more uniform bead geometry across all positions. With microalloying of the weld metal, you can expect enhanced CVN impact values for superior strength and durability.
