Arc Welding SCS
And more! Welding SCS saves time – no wiping off excess oil or grinding off rust or scale to prepare your steel, sheet or plate. SCS' ultra-clean surface means fewer contaminants to degrade weld integrity, so you get stronger welds and fewer rejects, including seam welded tubes made from SCS coil.
- SCS spot welds tested 20% stronger than HRPO
- Optimal SCS welds may use up to 30% less filler wire.
"With the clean SCS surface, our weld beads are more uniform with less spatter . . . a good weld was tricky with HRPO – not with SCS"
A manufacturer of rail cars replaced hot rolled black with SCS. They report: (1) "undercut" weld defects eliminated, (2) 35-50% reduction in repairs of seam welds, (3) big reductions in weld porosity, (4) pre-weld edge wire brushing was nearly eliminated.
A job shop making parts for ag-equipment OEMs replaced their 10 gauge P&O with SCS. The welders say SCS cleanliness prevents sheet slippage they get with P&O and greatly reduces weld fumes. SCS also plasma cuts and punches better.
A farm implement manufacturer had intended to install a ventilation system to exhaust the hazardous excess smoke that results from welding P&O material. SCS, with its absence of oil, has solved this problem.
