Austarc Features


Suited to long, heavy fillet and butt welding using the touch welding or ‘short arc’ technique and can be used on AC or DC power sources.

It’s instant arc initiation, high arc stability, and low spatter combines in an excellent fillet weld contour, edge washing and slag release. It is recommended for high quality down hand welding of heavy sections where high deposition rates are required.

Typical Applications

Typical applications include tanks, structural frames, tractor, truck and trailer bodies, rolling stock, roof trusses etc.
