ER70S-6 is the most common of the copper-coated mild steel GMAW (MIG) wires for single or multiple pass welding. Common uses include construction work, farm implement fabrications, general shop applications with poor fit-up or rusty, oily plates, tanks, steel castings or forgings.
ER70S-6 has the highest combination of manganese and silicon deoxidizers, permitting higher welding currents with 100% CO2 shielding gas and leaving a smoother weld bead with little to zero post-weld cleanup. CO2 shielding gas gives deeper penetration at faster welding speeds than argon mixtures, however the greater the argon content of the shielding gas the smoother the bead appearance with less spatter.
Especially well suited for sheet metal applications or structural plate steels that have moderate amounts of rust oil or mill scale on them.
