SG2 is a general purpose copper-coated solid wire suitable for many carbon steel welding applications using the MIG/Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) processes.
SG2 contains moderate amounts of manganese and silicon to provide sufficient deoxidation over light mill scale.
Shielding gas choices for SG2 in the GMAW mode are 100% carbon dioxide, argon/carbon dioxide mixtures, argon/oxygen mixtures, and other argon based mixed gas blends.
SG2 is used in a wide variety of applications including heavy equipment, automotive parts, railcars, agricultural equipment, and sheet metal welding.
Suitable for use over light rust.
