Solid wire reduces spatter

Published:  03 December, 2020

ESAB’s OK AristoRod 38 Zn is a solid wire with a specially alloyed formula that can minimise porosity and spatter on galvanised steels. The company says it significantly reduces or eliminates rejects and rework, delivering optimised results when welding the galvanised steel components used in transportation, white goods, agricultural tanks and troughs, HVAC systems and construction.

ESAB says through tightly controlled micro-alloying elements in its formulation, OK AristoRod 38 Zn addresses the root cause of porosity and spatter associated with standard ER70S-6 wires without the expense or increased risk of burn through associated with metal cored wires. ESAB says it conducted head-to-head tests against other common options for welding galvanised steel and the results were conclusive: OK AristoRod 38 Zn offers the best performance at the lowest total cost of production.
