Fabshield XLR-8 has been specifically designed for the demanding application of structural steel erection. This self-shielded, flux-cored wire produces a stable arc within a wide range of parameters. It is capable of depositing X-ray quality welds in all positions and is especially well suited for producing vertical-up welds at high current levels for increased productivity. It is designed for single and multiple pass applications and will produce flat weld beads with excellent slag removal. Fabshield XLR-8 will produce welds with excellent mechanical properties under a wide range of heat input. Designed to be used with constant voltage (CV) power sources.
