Flux Cored Wires

Flux Cored Wires

We offer Open arc, Submerged arc and Gas shielded flux cored wires for wide range of application like JoiningWear-protection, Repairing and Build-up to meet requirements of various industries.
Open Arc FCAW wire deposits additional paybacks than common wires like Maximum productivity, Deposit efficiency, Ease of use etc.

A range of alloys, sizes and packages are offered.
Submerged Arc FCAW use a particular flux to tailor the resulting deposit / wear characteristics for your particular application along with FCAW wire.

Gas shielded FCAW offers outstanding Arc Stability - consistent and stable arc behavior makes all the difference in cutting time from procedural set-up and getting the joining / hardfacing deposit and appearance characteristics you expect.

Products available include Flat and horizontal flux cored wires for welding carbon steels designed for use with CO2 or Ar + CO2 shielding gas. Flat and horizontal wires deliver the kind of performance welders seek most for maximum welding productivity excellent arc stability, low spatter, good weld bead appearance, and easy to remove slag.

Flux Cored Wires

A wide range of flux wires are offered depending on the composition and applications.

SOLUTION FOR COMMON WELDING PROBLEMS

PROBLEM CAUSE SOLUTION
Porous Welds
  1. Excessively long or short stick out.
  2. Welding current too high.
  3. Insufficient or damp shielding gas.
  4. Too fast travel speed.
  5. Base metal surface covered with oil, grease.
  6. Wet, unclean or damaged wire.
  1. Maintain proper arc length.
  2. Use proper welding current.
  3. Increase gas flowrate and check gas purity.
  4. Reduce travel speed.
  5. Properly clean base metal prior to welding.
  6. Properly maintain and store wire.
Cracked Welds
  1. Insufficient weld size.
  2. Excessive joint restraint.
  3. Poor joint and/or preparation.
  4. Filter metal does not match base metal.
  5. excessively long or short arc length.
  6. Welding current too high.
  7. Insufficient or damp shielding gas.
  8. Too fast travel speed.
  9. Base metal surface covered with oil, grease. Moisture, rust, mill scale, etc.
  10. Rapid cooling rate.
  1. Adjust weld size to part thickness.
  2. Reduce joint restraint through proper design.
  3. Select the prope.
  4. Use more ductile filler.
  5. Reduce cooling rate through preheat.
  6. Properly clean base metal prior to welding.
Undercutting
  1. Faulty wire manipulation.
  2. Welding current too high.
  3. Too long an arc length.
  4. Too fast travel speed.
  5. Arc blow.
  1. Pause at each side of the weld bead using a weaving technique
  2. Use proper wire angles.
  3. Use proper welding current for wire size and welding position.
  4. Reduce arc length.
  5. reduce travel speed.
  6. reduce effect of arc blow.
Spatter
  1. Arc blow.
  2. Welding current to high.
  3. Too long an arch length.
  4. Wet, unclean or damaged wire.
  1. Attempt to reduce of arc blow.
  2. Reduce welding current.
  3. Reduce arc length.
  4. Property maintain and store wire.
Lack of Fusion
  1. Improper travel speed.
  2. Welding current too low..
  3. Faulty joint preparation.
  4. Too large an wire diameter.
  5. Magnetic arc blow.
  6. Wrong wire angle.
  1. Reduce travel speed.
  2. Increase welding current.
  3. Weld design should allow wire. Accessibility to all surfaces within the joint.
  4. Reduce wire diameter.
  5. Reduce effects of magnetic arc blow.
  6. Use proper wire angels.
Poor Penetration
  1. Travel speed too fast.
  2. Welding current too low.
  3. Poor joint design and/or preparation.
  4. Wire diameter too large.
  5. Wrong type of wire.
  6. Excessively long stick out.
  1. Decrease travel speed.
  2. Increase welding current.
  3. Increase root opening or decrease root face.
  4. use wire with deeper penetration characteristics.
  5. Reduce stick out.
Magnetic Arc Blow
  1. Unbalanced magnetic field during welding.
  2. Excessive magnetism in parts or fixture.
  1. Use alternating.
  2. Reduce welding current and arc length.
  3. Change the location of the work place.
Inclusions
  1. Incomplete slag removal between passes.
  2. Erratic travel speed.
  3. Too wide a weaving motion.
  4. Too large an wire.
  5. Letting slag run ahead of arc
  6. Tungsten spitting or sticking.
  1. Completely remove slag between passes.
  2. Use a uniform travel speed.
  3. Reduce width of weaving technique.
  4. Increase travel speed or change wire angle or reduce stick out.
  5. Properly prepare tungsten and use proper current.
