  • Using Stainless Steel gas flux core wire.

    While I was answering another post about what gas to use on SS MIG. I thought I would throw this out. Lots of shops now are switching to a SS gas flux core wire. One reason is they don't have to buy a big bottle of Tri Mix. I used it for years in 308 and 309 with either CO2 or 75/25. I like the 75/25 version better but most of our welders were changed over to CO2 thanks to the higher ups. Plus you can get the flux core online in many versions like 308,309, plus the L's and LSi versions and different diameters. But all our LWS stocked was big spools, but that has changed and they have ordered smaller ones...Bob

      Thx Bob, never used that before but I don't stock tri-mix and some jobs are to big for Tig. This sounds like good alternative

        Hey Bob, when you say smaller rolls, are you referring to 10# rolls or the little 2# ones? <br />

        I think I'd like to try the flux core stainless wire. Does it come in a dual shield version?

          2# or 10# on the Stainless that you use with gas...Bob
