Dual Shield II 711X is an all-position flux cored wire that displays exceptional impact properties in combination with CO2 shielding gas. This flux cored wire was developed to join low and medium carbon steels where higher impacts and toughness are required. As with all X Series wires, Dual Shield II 711X offers higher top-end current levels for out-of-position welding, broader operating ranges and higher deposition rates in out-of-position applications. ~Applications include construction, shipbuilding, rail car, light and heavy equipment, and general fabrication where exceptional impacts are required. Weld metal analysis is similar to Atom Arc 7018 and Atom Arc 7018-1.
