Weldcote Self-Shielding & Mild Steel Flux-Core Welding Wire #E71TGS035X2SP
The many positive characteristics of 71T-GS make it the smart choice for the "hobbyist" welder, as it works very well on the small 110 volt power source/feeders which have become so popular. 71T-GS is designed for single pass welding of thin-gauge carbon steel, ranging from 3/16" to 22 gauge. This electrode is formulated to weld quite effectively over galvanized material and can be used on certain aluminized surfaces as well. 71T-GS requires no external gas-shielding and should be welded with DCEN (straight polarity). 71T-GS is the natural choice for applications such as lap and butt welds on galvanized sheet metal, repair of automobile sheet metal, welding ductwork and joining of galvanized roofing sheet metal.
