ESAB’s New Welding Wire

Posted by Irina Tabakina

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduces Coreweld C6 LF, a new low manganese emission, high efficiency metal-cored welding wire developed in response to new EPA regulations and guidelines from ACGIH (American Conference of Government Industrial Hygienists) for manganese exposure limits. Coreweld C6 LF has more than 50 percent lower manganese content and is designed to provide excellent operating qualities while significantly reducing the manganese levels in the welding fumes when compared to standard metal-cored electrodes of the same classification. ESAB’s optimized formulation aids users in their efforts to reduce exposure to manganese in the welding environment while providing good mechanical properties and low weld metal diffusible hydrogen levels. Coreweld C6 LF offers the same enhanced features of ESAB’s standard Coreweld C6 with welder-friendly operating characteristics, including consistent arc stability, very low spatter, good bead shape and minimal clean-up in an easy-to-use wire.
