ESAB Adds Two New Wires to Dual Shield X Series

Share Article

Two new wires expand the range of the popular Dual Shield X Series. These wires are designed to be easy to use so even less experienced welders can achieve top quality welds.

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has added two additional wires to its popular Dual Shield X-Series of flux cored wires. The X-Series wires are more forgiving than traditional flux cored wires, especially for less experienced welders, with an easily controlled arc and improved operation at both lower and higher current levels. Dual Shield X wires offer high deposition rates, fast travel speeds, flat bead profile, limited spatter and extremely easy slag removal for overall productivity, ease of use and outstanding operator appeal.

Dual Shield 810X-Ni1 is an all-position 1% Nickel flux cored wire for general purpose welding of low alloy steel.
