Tensaweld Workmate Weld Wire

Clifton Steel’s Tensaweld Nickel-90 is a low alloy steel, gas shielded, flux cored, electrode wire designed for all position welding.

The Nickel-90 weld wire is formulated for welding AR400, AR500, ASTM A203 Gr A, and A352 Gr LC1 and LC2. This wire is designed with 1% nickel and microalloying to produce welds with tougher weld joints. The arc transfer is soft, letting it melt onto the puddle in a small to medium droplet mode. The Nickel-90 wire is intended for use with 100% CO2 or blends of 75-80% Ar/balance CO2 shielding gases. 

Clifton Steel strives to provide our customers with a confident experience while deciding what wire to purchase. That’s why we’ve taken the guesswork out of the buying experience. By developing these wires to compliment our products, we guarantee compatibility when partnered with our material.

IMPORTANT: SPECIAL VENTILATION AND/OR EXHAUST REQUIRED

Fumes from the normal use of some welding products can contain significant quantities of components – such as chromium and manganese – which can lower the 5.0 mg/m3 maximum exposure guideline for general welding fume.

Before use, read and understand the material safety data sheet (MSDS) for this product and specific information printed on the product container.
