Flux Cored Arc Welding – Self Shielded (FCAWSS)

In an increasingly competitive environment, some contractors in the structural steel industry are converting from stick welding (SMAW) to self-shielded flux-cored welding (FCAW) as one way to improve productivity and to reduce costs. Stick welding has traditionally been the process used on jobsites for major infrastructure jobs, as it is a familiar process to many welding operators, it offers mobility since shielding gas cylinders and a wire feeder are not required.

In recent years, significant technology advancements in both equipment and filler metals have made the self-shielded FCAW process a more viable option for contractors — one that offers higher productivity, and can save time and money in labor. Self-shielded FCAW wires are now formulated to be easier to use and to provide better weld quality than ever before, making them more appealing to many contractors.
