AIRCO METAL-COR 6 is a continuous tubular steel welding electrode with a powdered-metal core; gas shielding rather than slag is used to protect the core. It eliminates 50 to 70% of the smoke and fumes generated by self-shielded flux-cored electrodes and about 30% of the smoke from gas-shielded flux-cored electrodes. Metal-Core 6 is used to deposit typically 1.6 to 1.8% manganese steel weld metal that provides as-deposited tensile strength in the range 85,000 to 92,000 psi, depending on composition of the shielding gas. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: SA-381. Producer or source: Airco Welding Products.
