Filler Metals/Electrodes

Filler metals are alloys or pure metals that are heated to liquefy, melt and flow into the space between two close fitting parts, creating a brazed or soldered joint that meets specific requirements for strength and corrosion resistance. Welding electrodes are metal wires with baked-on chemical coatings. The rod sustains the welding arc and is the filler metal used for the joint being welded. The coating protects the metal from damage, stabilizes the arc, and improves the weld. The type of base metal being welded, the welding process and machine, and other conditions determine the type of welding electrode used.

ESAB MARATHON PAC™ ULTRA BULK PACKAGE HOLDS 22 PERCENT MORE WELDING WIRE IN A STRONGER PACKAGE

ESAB Marathon PAC

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced Marathon Pac™ Ultra, a new 1,100-lb. bulk welding wire drum, that features a robust outer box and reinforced corners for stabilizing the inner drum to prevent wire movement during shipping. Marathon Pac Ultra retains ESAB’s trademarked octagonal inner drum, known since 1989 as the industry benchmark, as well as ESAB’s reverse coiling technology to ensure that the wire comes out straight for greater process stability, less spatter and better targeting, positioning the wire at the center of the weld joint.
