Description and Applications

BLUEMIG S6 is a copper coated, low carbon steel GMAW wire, specially formulated for optimum performance under welding grade CO2 and higher CO2 mixed gases. Arc transfer characteristics are excellent with Argon based gas mixtures, particularly in spray and pulsed modes of transfer. The high quality copper, coating of BLUEMIG S6 ensures smooth and stable feeding, good electrical contact and low tip wear.

BLUEMIG S6 is suitable for a wide range of welding applications on mild and medium strength steels. It is ideal for positional, single pass welding of sheet steel and steel pipes / tubes where the high silicon content promotes smooth even weld beads with excellent wedge wetting and contour.
