Formula XL Welding Wire Delivers High Impact Strength


Added deoxidizers weld through impurities, Low diffusible hydrogen reduces crack sensitivity and moisture pick, Retains impact toughness after stress relieving Hobart Brothers introduces its Formula XL®-550 gas shielded flux cored wires for single- or multi-pass welding on ships, storage vessels, earth moving equipment, structural steel and offshore oil rigs, as well as for general mild steel applications. This wire delivers x-ray quality welds in all positions and features added deoxidizers to cut through light rust and mill scale with minimal pre-cleaning. shielding gas, Formula XL-550 wire is available in diameters of .045-, .052- and 1/16- in. The .045-in. and .052-in. wire has a dual AWS (American Welding Society) classification of E71T-1 and E71T-12CJ H4, and the 1/16-in. wire has a dual AWS classification of E71T-1 and E71T-12CJ H8. These wires offer high impact values at low temperatures (60- 70 ft-lbs at -40 degrees Fahrenheit). Another added advantage of the Formula XL-550 wire is the ability to retain high impact toughness properties in applications where post-weld stress relief is required. The low hydrogen level in the Formula XL-550 flux cored wire helps eliminate cracking and does not allow worm tracks to form in the weld under normal working conditions. The wire also features improved wet-in action that produces an aesthetically-pleasing, flat or slightly-convex bead contour. Formula XL-550 has excellent slag release to help reduce downtime for post-weld cleanup and to expedite the welding process in multi-pass applications.Hobart Brothers Company of Troy, Ohio, is a leading manufacturer of welding filler metals marketed under the brand names Hobart, Tri-Mark, McKay and Corex.
