Regular price £42.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Features and Applications

Micro-alloyed steel, triple de-oxidised (Ti, Al, Zr) suitable for the welding of C-Mn and low-alloy steels.

Ideal for use on greasy and oxidised surfaces subsequent to any coating processes. (i.e. galvanised steel)

Works well at low temperatures.

Typically used on tanks, containers, car industry, structural work, household appliances, pipelines, boilers, naval & petrochemical sectors etc.

Green wire is produced using virgin raw materials sourced from specialised steel mills, which ensures consistent reliability and quality.
