Electrostatically Copper Coated Gas Metal Arc (MIG) Wire
All Positional Welding of Mild and Medium Strength Steels
Precision Layer Wound, Very Low Diffusable Hydrogen
Suitable for all Transfer Modes
Designed for use with Argon/CO2 and CO2 Shielding Gases
DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATION
Austmig ES6 is a copper coated, low carbon steel GMAW wire, formulated for optimum performance under Argon/CO2 mixed gases and welding grade CO2. Arc transfer characteristics are excellent with Argon based gas mixtures, particularly in spray and pulsed transfer modes. Austmig ES6 is an electrostatically copper coated wire providing excellent wire feeding and electrical conductivity and reducing contact tip wear. The higher manganese and silicon content of Austmig ES6 provides effective weld metal deoxidation for resistance to porosity. Austmig ES6 is suitable for a wide range of welding applications on mild and medium strength steels providing consistently very low "H5" weld metal diffusible hydrogen levels when used with suitable shielding gases.
Suitable for welding mild and medium strength steels. Ideal for positional welding of sheet steel and steel pipes and tubes where the high silicon content promotes smooth even weld beads with excellent edge wetting and contour.
