MIG/MAG solid wires range for C-Mn and low-alloy steels.

CARBOFIL 1 GOLD is a special bronze-coated G3Si1/ER70S-6 type solid MAG welding wire, supplied precision layer wound, depositing C-1.1%Mn weld metal, for welding a wide range of mild and C-Mn structural steels. Suitable for welding with CO2 and Ar-based mixed shielding gases.
It meets the classifications:
        - EN ISO 14341-A: G 42 3 C1 3Si1
        - EN ISO 14341-A: G 42 4 M21 3Si1
        - AWS A5.18: ER 70S-6

Product Advantages

✔ Good start & stop characteristics
✔ Optimized weldability
✔ Arc stability


CARBOFIL 1 GOLD has a very good arc stability, excellent feeding properties, low spatter during welding, good start and stop characteristics with a low consumption of contact tips. Applications are the same as CARBOFIL 1, but especially suitable for welding in spray arc. CARBOFIL 1 GOLD is available with a wide range of packaging formats from standard spools to high-quantity (max. 300 kgs drum) robotic application. The “GOLD” coating is produced with MHC technology, which guarantee a low content of elements associated with arc instability.

Available in B300, drum 300 kg, SQPA.
Diameter from 0,8 to 1,2.
