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

CARBOFIL 1A ELITE is a special coated G4Si1/ER70S-6 type solid MAG welding wire, developed to meet highest performance expectations, taking the actual GOLD to enhanced characteristics in terms of feedability and weldability. It's ​ideal for very high welding parameters with automatic and robotic applications. For welding a wide range of mild and C-Mn structural steels, deposition C-1.3%Mn weld metal. Suitable for welding with CO2 and Ar-based mixed shielding gases.
It meets the classifications:
       - EN ISO 14341-A: G 46 3 C1 4Si1
       - EN ISO 14341-A: G 46 4 M21 4Si1
       - AWS A5.18: ER 70S-6

Product Advantages

✔ Excellent feedability
✔ Exceptional arc stability
✔ Low spatters & clean bead profile
✔ Enhanced productivity


CARBOFIL 1A ELITE shows exceptional arc stability, low presence of spatters and smooth bead profile thanks to the improved surface finishing.
Produced with MHC+ technology, guarantees excellent feedability, low contact tip consumption and high oxidation resistance.
Thanks to its constancy, it shows enhanced productivity and saving in terms of costs (maintenance/cleaning).

CARBOFIL 1A ELITE is available in​ a wide range of packaging formats, from standard spools (B300/BS300) to bulk packaging drums (till 800 kg) for robotic application. Suitable for infrastructures, earthmoving equipment, heavy machinery
and automotive parts manufacturing.

Available in B300, BS300, DRUM 300 / 450 / 600 / 800kg.
Diameter from 1,0 to 1,2.
