E71T-GS Spools Gasless Flux Core Welding Wire Blue Demon

E71T-GS Spools Gasless Flux Core Welding Wire Blue Demon


E71T-GS is an all-position, single-pass, flux
cored welding wire designed to weld carbon
steel. The unique quality of this product is that
you do not have to use a shielding gas.
E71T-GS produces smooth arc action, low
spatter, full slag coverage, and easy slag
removal. The bead appearance is not equal
to a gas-shielded product, but the benefits of
not having to use gas makes this product
extremely popular.
* Make sure your power source is set properly
for a good, non-porous weld.

Typical Applications
• Lap and butt welds on galvanized sheet metal
• Repair of automobile sheet metal
• Joining of galvanized roofing sheet metal
• Prefab building fabrication
• Tanks
• Ornamental iron
• Farm implement repairs
• General fabrication

AWS Specification
AWS A5.20/A5.20M:2005
AWS Classification E71T-GS

Welding Current

(DCEN) Straight Polarity

Typical Wire Chemistry
The composition of weld metal is not
particularly meaningful since electrodes of
these classifications are intended only for
single-pass welds. Dilution from the base
metal in such welds is usually quite high.
