A general purpose welding wire for fabrication of mild steel. Contains deoxidizers that provide better wetting, yielding a flatter bead shape and the capability of faster travel speeds. Usually used with 75/25 (Argon/CO2) shielding gas or with higher contents of Argon, such as 90/10. Can also be used with 100% CO2. Conforms to AWS A5.18 ER70S-6.
Repairs on a variety of mild and low alloy steels, small diameter pipe and tubing and sheet metal applications. Primarily used for single pass on steels where rusty and dirty surfaces are not cleaned before welding.
