ER70S-3

< CLICK HERE for additional information on this alloy >

 

ER70S-3 is a general purpose MIG wire
suitable for many carbon steel welding
applications. It is a silicon and manganese
deoxidized wire making it excellent for
general fabrication. This product requires
a shielding gas.


Typical Applications
• General fabrication
• Metal furniture
• Sheet metal
• Ornamental iron fabrication
• Farm equipment
• Auto frames
