Hobart Brothers' FabCO Hornet gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire can be used in all positions
For welding applications that demand weld penetration, high productivity rates and low-temperature impact strength, Hobart Brothers introduces its FabCO Hornet gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire. Designed as a general fabrication welding wire for mild or low alloy steels, the FabCO Hornet wire can be used in all positions with either 100% CO2 or a 75% Ar/25% CO2 shielding gas mixture. To increase welding productivity, the wire features a removable slag and low spatter levels. The FabCO Hornet wire also produces a low amount of welding fumes.
Available in .045-inch, .052-inch and 1/16-inch diameters, the FabCO Hornet welding wire produces a flat bead profile and is suitable for either single- or multi-pass applications. It also meets the optional H8 diffusible hydrogen requirement. Classified under American Welding Society code A5.20 as E71T-1C H8, E71T-1M H8, E71T-9C H8 and E71T-9M H8, the FabCO Hornet welding wire features a tensile strength of between 70,000 and 95,000 psi. Typical impact strength is 75 ft-lbs at –20°F when used with a mixed shielding gas.
