Innershield® NR®-233

Flux-cored self-shielded (FCAW-S) Wire

AWS: E71T-8-H8, E71T8-A2-CS3-H8

Innershield® NR®-233 from Lincoln Electric is a good choice for training or novice welders while also meeting the mechanical property requirements listed in AWS D1.8.

DETAILS

The choice for novice or experienced welders looking for an easy to operate self-shielded, flux-cored wire. The excellent arc control and accommodating weld puddle enable operators to make high quality weld deposits regardless of skill level.

Features

  • Enhanced Feedability – New design increases wire stiffness to aid feedability and promotes smooth arc transfer
  • Wire Snap-Off – Easy to break off wire end without tools for better re-strike
  • Meets AWS D1.8 requirements for Demand Critical Welds – Three lot tests available at www.lincolnelectric.com/D1.8 to meet AWS D1.8 lot waiver requirements
  • Effortless Operability – Welders of all skill levels benefit from the easy to control arc and forgiving weld puddle even out of position

Typical Applications

  • Seismic structural steel erection and fabrication
  • General structural steel erection and fabrication
  • Ship and barge fabrication
  • Vertical up and overhead fillets and groove welds

Welding Positions

  • All
