KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA – March 2020 – Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, introduces its line of copper-coated mild steel filler metal for general welding applications. The new ER70S-6 wire is available in spools for MIG welding applications and cut lengths for TIG welding applications. The wire produces optimum flow and a consistent welding arc, which diminishes weld spatter and offers an improved bead finish.
The new ER70S-6 wire, which contains higher levels of silicon than other standard grades of MIG wire, provides excellent tolerance against rust and scale and produces high deposit strength. The high-quality properties of the new ER70S-6 wire make it ideal for automated welding applications, which require higher tolerances.
“Our Weldcote premium, copper-coated mild steel filler wire will appeal to welders searching for better performance,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “It has similar properties to premium brand wires, yet it is priced significantly less.”
The wire is available in new, heavy-duty robust spools that are twice the thickness and number of ribs, 72 at 1/8” versus 36 at 1/16”. The spools are precision wound and covered with Rust-X® copper shield paper wrap to protect against corrosion and extend shelf life. The spools are then shrink-wrapped before being shipped in a heavy-duty box. Spools are available in 2-, 11-, 33-, and 44-pound sizes. A 550-pound drum is also available.
The ER70S-6 cut length wire for TIG welding is packaged in both one-pound packages, as well as in four 10-pound tubes in a 40-pound master carton. ER70S-6 wire is used for butt and fillet welding of sheet and plate of various thicknesses for general carbon steel fabrication applications.
