Consumable electrode wire is fed to a metal inert gas (MIG) welding gun and forms an arc with the workpiece to melt and fuse the base material and the electrode material and create a weld. MIG wire typically comes on a coil or spool and is also known as welding wire or filler wire. Clear any dirt, buildup, or debris from the workpiece before welding to get the best result.
Carbon Steel: For Steel (General Purpose)
Use this carbon steel wire on mild steel for general purpose welding of clean, prepared surfaces. It leaves minimal slag for easy clean up.
Nickel: For Nickel, Steel, & Stainless Steel (High Temperature)
Leave strong, hard welds on steel surfaces with this nickel alloy wire. It can be used for joining cast iron to itself or to mild steel and is good for repairing castings.
Stainless Steel: For Stainless Steel (Corrosion Resistant)
Weld stainless steel surfaces with stainless steel wire to maintain the corrosion resistance of the base material.
Silicon Bronze: For Steel & Copper (Superior Finish)
Join steel or copper to itself or to each other with silicon bronze wire. This soft wire can be welded at low heat to reduce distortion of thin surfaces. It can sometimes clog wire feeders. It leaves a distinctive gold finish.
Aluminum: For Aluminum (High Weldability)
Lay welds on aluminum surfaces with this wire. Aluminum has a low melting point and is typically welded at low heat to avoid burn through.
Cast Iron: For Cast Iron Repair
Make repairs to castings and join cast iron surfaces with this wire. It may leave a light slag that's easy to remove.
