Weldcote Mild Steel Tig Wire 36in 10 LB Box 70S-2
Weldcote Carbon Steel ER70S-2 TIG Wire is a great addition to your TIG Machines
This carbon steel TIG wire is triple de-oxidized and contains manganese and silicon deoxidizers which are a characteristic of the steel wire group. This wire also contains small amounts of titanium, zirconium and aluminum. This filler rod can be used on all grades of mild and carbon steels, and also will produce superior quality welds with minimal porosity, even over rust and scale.
Typically, this wire is used on pipes and structural steel work. When you order your box, you can pick the width of wire to best suit your needs. This ranges from .035 to 1/8”. The thickness of the material to be welded determines the diameter of the filler rod. The typical specifications of the steel are STM, A36, A258-C, A515-55 and A516-70.
TIG welding requires an immaculately clean workspace, so nothing contaminates the metals. This is also why your choice of filler rod is extremely important, since the rod must correctly match the material and alloy you will be welding.
