Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)



FCAW is a flexible, conventional weld overlay process where a cored wire is fed through an electric arc to create a weld deposit on the base material. The cored wire consists of a metal sheath, usually nickel, that is wrapped around a powder center containing tungsten carbide particles, alloying elements and flux.



Features & Benefits

Readily available, field portable equipment
  • Allows for field repair of damaged or worn components
  • Particularly helpful when component removal is cost prohibitive
Large wire diameters, up to 3/32” (2.8mm) available, allow increased deposit rates
  • High deposit rates increase productivity reducing asset outage time
Carbide loading up to 60%
  • Allows for high overlay wear resistance
Apply more stable mono crystalline tungsten carbide which resist melting in the welding arc
  • More carbides in the resultant overlay provide better wear resistance
ASME recognized welding process
  • Overlays can be applied to registered pressure equipment and vessels
