A rutile flux-cored all position wire for welding HSLA & Q&T Steels

  • Ship Building
  • Off-Shore Drilling Rigs
  • HSLA Steels & Weathering Steels
  • Flat Position - Butt Joint
  • Horizontal Position - Butt Joint
  • Vertical Position - Up
  • Overhead Position - Butt Joint
  • Flat Position - Fillet Joint
  • Horizontal Position - Fillet Joint
  • Overhead Position - Fillet Joint


Offers excellent arc stability and low spatter using either CO2 or Ar/CO2 mixtures with up to 80% Argon. These weldability features, combined with low diffusible hydrogen levels and good impact values makes the wire a good choice for single and multiple pass welding in all positions.


Applications include ship building, offshore drilling rigs, HSLA steels and weathering steels with no colour match requirement.
