For welding applications that demand excellent weld penetration, high productivity rates and good low temperature impact strength, Hobart Brothers introduces its FabCO® Hornet gas-shielded flux-cored welding wire    Designed as a general fabrication welding wire for mild or low alloy steels, the FabCO Hornet wire can be used in all positions with either 100 percent CO2 or a 75% Ar/25% CO2 shielding gas mixture. To increase welding productivity, the wire features an easily removable slag and low spatter levels. The FabCO Hornet wire also produces a low amount of welding fumes, similar to most new wires in its class.    Available in .045-in., .052-in. and 1/16-in. diameters, the FabCO Hornet welding wire produces a flat bead profile and is suitable for either single- or multi-pass applications. It also meets the optional H8 diffusible hydrogen requirement.    Classified under American Welding Society code A5.20 as E71T-1C H8, E71T-1M H8, E71T-9C H8 and E71T-9M H8, the FabCO Hornet welding wire features a tensile strength of between 70,000 and 95,000 psi. Typical impact strength is 75 ft-lbs at –20 degrees Fahrenheit when used with a mixed shielding gas.
