Hobart Brothers has received a patent for its Tri-Mark® Metalloy Vantage™ and Metalloy Vantage Ni1 gas shielded metal cored wires.
According to the company, the wires reduce silicon island formation and produce almost silicon-deposit-free weld bead toe lines.
The Metalloy Vantage wire is suitable for carbon steel applications, such as the railcar, automotive, and general fabrication industries, when single- and multi-pass welding. The Ni1 wire is suited for welding nickel-molybdenum steels and was designed primarily for the structural steel market and manufacturers of large light and electric transmission poles.
