Hobart Brothers is offering its Hobart Fabshield XLR-8 and Fabshield XLNT-6 self-shielded flux-cored wires for a wide range of demanding welding applications in a new packaging design.

Hobart Brothers’ Fabshield XLR-8 wire offers all-position welding capabilities, while the Fabshield XLNT-6 wire has been designed for flat and horizontal welding applications.

Both wires offer good slag removal, along with high impact strengths at low temperatures and are designed to improve productivity on demanding heavy equipment, barge or tank fabrication and field repair applications.

They are also ideal for structural steel erection, bridge construction and ship fabrication.

The Fabshield XLR-8 wire offers low-hydrogen weld deposits – less than 6.7ml per 100g of weld deposit – and is capable of producing vertical-up welds at high current levels.

It offers reliable out-of-position welding capabilities at both high and low heat inputs.

The Fabshield XLNT-6 wire provides high deposition rates and good arc stability, allowing contractors to improve their productivity compared with using comparably classified stick electrodes.

The wire provides a tensile strength of 87,200lb/in2.

Hobart Brothers offers the Fabshield XLR-8 wire in 1/16-, .072- and 5/64-in diameters and the Fabshield XLNT-6 wire in 5/64- and 3/32-in diameters.

Each new package features a screen-printed box with the product logos, along with wire parameter information to assist customers in proper welding procedure.

The packaging also helps to differentiate between the two wires with a quick glance, so both distributors and customers can easily stock and inventory the products.

The company has also included helmet stickers in every box.
