Copper-Coated Mild Steel Filler Metal

Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, has introduced 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 improved bead finish," said a company spokesperson.

"The 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," continued the spokesperson. "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 heavy-duty 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 shrink wrapped before being shipped in a heavy-duty box. Spools are available in 2-lb., 11-lb., 33-lb. and 44-lb. sizes. A 550-lb. drum is also available.

The ER70S-6 cut length wire for TIG welding is packaged in both 1 lb. packages, as well as in four 10-lb. tubes in a 40-lb. 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.
