Flux cored arc Welding (FCAW)
Flux cored arc welding (FCAW) is an arc welding process in which the heat for welding is produced by an arc between a continuously fed tubular electrode wire and the work.
Shielding is obtained by a flux contained within the tubular electrode wire (self-shielded, FCAW-S) or by the flux and an externally supplied shielding gas (gas-shielded, FCAW-G).
What are the advantages of FCAW over SMAW process?
- A high-deposition rate process (speed at which the filler metal is applied) in the 1G/1F/2F
- Semi or complete automatic welding process with high welding speed
- Metallurgical benefits from the flux
- Less pre-cleaning of metal is required
- Porosity chances are very low
Air Liquide Flux Core Arc Welding Consumables combine 3 general features: productivity of continuous wire welding, metallurgical benefits that can be derived from a flux, a slag that supports and shapes the weld bead. Air Liquide Canada has a wide selection of FCAW wires for mild, high alloy and stainless steels.
Air Liquide Canada provides best combos of filler metal (BLUESHIELD™) and shielding gas (BLUESHIELD™ and ARCAL™) for your various applications that help you to enhance quality and productivity but save cost.
