Top Features

  • Excellent drawing and copper coating techniques ensure superior feed ability and excellent arc stability. Copper coating provides superior arc-starting characteristics, for long contact tip life and is manufactured not to flake, which can clog liners and contact tips.
  • Will support all the traditional modes of GMAW metal transfer: short circuiting, globular, axial spray, and pulsed spray.
  • Precision layer wound spools are well suited for applications where accurate and consistent wire feeding is necessary.
  • Excellent spatter control and bead profile.
