ESAB'S new matt stainless steel MIG wires improve welding performance

ESAB Group : 06 February, 2004  (New Product)
ESAB has developed a new generation of solid stainless steel MIG welding wires that feature a matt surface appearance. These wires provide improved welding properties and lead directly to enhanced MIG welding performance.
ESAB has developed a new generation of solid stainless steel MIG welding wires that feature a matt surface appearance. These wires provide improved welding properties and lead directly to enhanced MIG welding performance.

The matt appearance results from a new surface treatment that is part of an improved manufacturing process. In addition to the surface being matt, rather than shiny, the diameter has a tighter tolerance and the stiffness is higher. Furthermore, strict control of the cast and helix, both of which are important properties for spooled wires, leads to additional benefits.

Taken together, these product characteristics give the new wires greatly improved feedability and a very stable welding arc, resulting in dependable performance for the MIG process, consistently high weld quality, and minimal post-weld cleaning.

ESAB matt stainless steel MIG wires are available in a range of diameters for most commonly used grades of stainless steel. The wires are supplied in 15 kg basket spools for semi-automatic welding and 250 or 475 kg MarathonPac bulk drums for mechanised and robotic welding.

As one of the world's leading suppliers of welding equipment and consumables, ESAB manufactures its own solid wires for stainless steel, un-alloyed and low-alloyed steel, and aluminium. The new matt stainless steel MIG wires have been developed as a direct response to demand from the marketplace for improved welding performance, drawing upon ESAB's extensive experience and specialist knowledge of the production technologies involved.
