Lincoln Electric Adds Metalshield® MC®-80Ni1 to the Metalshield® Product Family

Cleveland – Lincoln Electric introduces Metalshield® MC®-80Ni1, a premium, low-alloy, metal-cored wire. This metal-cored wire is designed to produce high strength and toughness and H4 diffusible hydrogen weld deposits required in such applications as structural and heavy fabrication or other high-strength welding applications that require a tensile strength of 550 MPa (80ksi).

Key Features:

H4 diffusible hydrogen levels

Low spatter and excellent arc stability

Deoxidizing agents to minimize pre- and post-weld clean up

Enhanced silicon island management

Low temperature impact properties – Charpy V-Notch test results capable of exceeding 40 J (35 ft•lbf) @ -51° C (-60° F)
Excellent bead shape and profile











Metalshield® MC®-80Ni1 delivers low spatter and excellent arc stability and is great for semiautomatic and robotic applications. Enhanced silicon island management minimizes slag and eases slag removal.
Metalshield® MC®-80Ni1 is available in standard diameters of .045 in., .052 in., and 1/16 in. and packaged in 500 lb. Accu-Trak® drums and 33 lb. plastic spools.
