For general purpose welding fabrication and repairs on thin gauge mild or galvanized steel and coated materials, Hobart Brothers (Troy, OH) offers its versatile Fabshield® 23 self-shielded flux-cored welding wire.
This wire produces a soft, smooth arc with good wetting action, making it easy for welding operators to use on multiple welding applications and material thicknesses. Because it requires no shielding gas, the Fabshield 23 wire can be used outdoors or in drafty conditions and it will still provide excellent welding performance.
Fabshield 23 wire features low spatter levels to help minimize post-weld cleanup. It is suitable for single-pass welding applications, especially for fillet and lap welds, and welding operators can use it in all welding positions, which minimizes the need to order and store additional wires for different applications.
Hobart Brothers offers the Fabshield 23 welding wire in .030 in, .035 in, .045 in, 1/16 in and 3/32 in diameters in multiple packaging weights.
