The following items have been added to your list


Dual Shield II 712X is an all-position flux cored wire intended for applications requiring outstanding weld metal toughness. This X Series wire, in combination with 75% Argon/25% CO2 shielding gas, can produce Charpy V-Notch impact results of more than 40 ft-lb (68 J) at -60°F (-51°C) and Crack Tip Opening Displacement (CTOD) results of more than 20 mils (0.5 mm) at -40°F (-40°C). Dual Shield II 712X also provides the smooth arc and low spatter levels characteristic of Dual Shield flux cored wires. Applications include off-shore oil components, shipbuilding and heavy equipment where exceptional Charpy impact/low temperature toughness is required.
