Filler-metal solutions for fabricating, manufacturing.

Position:FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show 2007

Among the newest products to be displayed are Rocket 7024 stick electrodes and Fabshield XLR-8 self-shielded flux-cored wires. A range of McKay brand stainless steel products, Hobart brand low hydrogen stick electrodes, and Tri-Mark Metalloy metal- cored wires will also be showcased.

Rocket 7024 is a new E7024 electrode designed with "best of class" features that reduce clean up and rework, including a new slag system that provides easy slag release from the weld joint, in some cases self-peeling, with no entrapment in the toes of the weld. It features a smooth arc and low spatter levels, along with the ability to weld through moderate mill scale or dirty materials.

The Hobart Fabshield XLR-8 is a self-shielded flux-cored wire featuring reliable out-of-position welding capabilities at both high and low heat inputs. It is especially well suited for vertical-up welds at high current levels and has lower diffusible hydrogen levels than competitive T-8 wires. It meets the new D-Designation under AWS A5.20:2005, making it useable for AWS D1.8 Demand Critical Welds.
