Tensaweld Workmate Weld Wire

Clifton Steel’s Tensaweld Workmate is a specialty welding wire that contains higher levels of manganese and silicon than other standard grades of MIG wire to produce high-quality welds when used on dirty, oily, or rusty steel.

The Workmate weld wire is a strong overall 70 series wire formulated to work with parts that are scaly or slightly dirty. The high silicon content increases the fluidity of the weld pool, thus creating a smoother bead appearance and resulting in minimal post-weld grinding. Workmate wire is engineered to provide porosity-free, x-ray quality welds at the highest tensile strength (as welded) of all the plain carbon steel wires. 

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.

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.
