Select-Arc Inc. offers two low-alloy steel electrodes designed for applications requiring the coloration and corrosion resistance of the weathering type of structural steels.
Select 810-W is a gas-shielded, flux-cored, all-position wire that contains alloy additions that match those of weathering steels such as ASTM A588. Available in 0.045-, 0.052-, and 0.0625-in. diameters, the electrode is used commonly in bridge and highway construction.
Select 80C-W is a composite, metal-cored electrode that delivers higher deposition rates than solid wires and reduces cold-lap on heavier plate or scaled areas. It typically is employed in the welding of bridges, transmission towers and poles, and some building construction. The electrode is available in 0.035-, 0.045-, 0.052-, and 0.0625-in. diameters.
