A large number of fabricators across various markets depend on Praxair for high-quality welding and cutting products at the best value. Our products are available in a range of sizes and packages to provide the flexibility you need for your end-product requirements, but the key to attaining the best value is finding the steel wire that best suits your processes. With our ProStar™ Professional, ProStar Automotive, and Advantage™ ER70S-6 welding wires, we offer three excellent choices for consistent, high-quality welds, throughput and quality for automated welding processes.
Regardless of the arc transfer process you use or the position in which you weld, Praxair has the right product to help you improve and protect end-product quality. From short-circuit to spray and pulse-spray, Praxair welding wires provide consistent chemistry and mechanical performance as well as the desired operator appeal and weldability you need to increase throughput and productivity. With no cast or helix, you can avoid uneven wear on consumables which can cause arc wander, over-welding, feed issues and shut downs. Read below to see the advantages of each wire and how they may impact your welding process.
