The FabCO Hornet gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire is designed as a general fabrication welding wire for mild or low alloy steels. The wire can be used in all positions with either 100 percent carbon dioxide or a 75 percent Argon and 25 percent carbon dioxide shielding gas mixture. To increase welding productivity, the wire features removable slag and low-spatter levels. The FabCO Hornet wire also produces a low amount of welding fumes, similar to most new wires in its class, said the manufacturer. Available in 0.045-, 0.052- and 1/16 -inch diameters, the FabCO Hornet welding wire produces a flat bead profile and is suitable for either single- or multipass applications.
