Offers extremely high operator appeal in applications involving thin gauge galvanized or carbon steels. Arc action is smooth and stable, excellent at low welding currents. DCEN ( straight polarity) operation facilitates the welding of sections as thin as 18 gauge with little tendency for burn through. Good wetting action makes it well suited for the lap and butt joint welds encountered in body panel and sheet metal duct work. With vertical down welding, bead geometry and appearance are excellent; spatter levels are low. Well suited for use in portable welding systems, as the small diameters perform well on portable 110 volt input welding machines. It is recommended only for single pass welding and can be used in all positions using no shielding gas.
