Why use Flux Cored Welding?

  • High-quality weld deposit with excellent appearance
  • Can be used to join many types of metals over a wide thickness range
  • Relatively high electrode efficiency and process duty cycle
  • Excellent weld penetration simplifies joint design
  • The arc is visible and easy to use
  • Because of its greater tolerance for base plate contamination, Flux Cored Welding requires less pre-cleaning than MIG
  • Deposition rate is up to four times greater than Stick Welding
  • The use of self-shielded electrodes eliminates the need for flux handling or gas apparatus, and is more tolerant of windy conditions present in outdoor construction than gas-shielded processes
