Advantages of Tru-Core® Welding Wire

The Tru-Core® 0.045” FC71T is a flux-cored, gas-shielded, all-position electrode that works best with welding carbon steel, as well as certain low alloy steels, in which a minimum tensile strength of 70,000 psi is required. Boasting an increase in versatility, this type of welding wire can be used for single- and multiple-pass welding using 100% CO2 or 75-80% Ar/balance CO2 mixtures. It also works excellently with various metal thicknesses, ranging from 10-gauge sheet metals to heavy plate sections.

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

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

  • 100% CO2
  • 75% Argon/25% CO2
  • Flow rate: 35-45 CFH

These gas blends, along with the right welding process and parameters, enable all-position welding versatility. With Tru-Core® FC 71T welding wire, you can tackle any welding position and achieve exceptional results.
