Fabshield Hobart XLR-8 Welding Wire is low hydrogen T-8 self-shielded, all positional flux cored wire, producing a stable arc and flat bead profile, especially suited for vertical-up welds at high currents with excellent mechanical properties and a tensile strength of 490 MPa.
Capable of depositing X-ray quality welds, making it highly suitable for critical welding applications requiring a high degree of crack resistance due to its low diffusible hydrogen levels, less than 6.7ml per 100g of weld metal deposited.
XLR-8 has been designed for single and multi-pass welding applications with improved productivity in out-of-position welding, offering high impact strength of 42J at sub zero temperatures to -40°C.
