The application of high strength steels in offshore construction has become widespread. Grades equivalent to EN10025 S690Q are frequently applied to achieve a reduction in material thicknesses of up to 50% compared to traditional S355 steel grades. There is an ever increasing pressure on fabricators to lower production cost and cut production time. As a result, high productivity welding processes such as Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) are increasingly applied in high strength steel construction. All-position flux cored wires with rutile slag systems are the preferred type of consumable as they combine high productivity and low post weld clean-up time.
OUTERSHIELD 690-H is a high strength FCAW wire with a rutile based slag system. The product was recently redesigned to meet the increasingly stringent mechanical property requirements in the offshore industry. The improvements have led to a product that takes high strength flux cored wires to the next level.
