The unique quality of this product is that you do not have to use a shielding gas. This flux cored wire can be used in mig welding that does not require the use of shielding gasses. Type E71-T-GS. A flux core welding wire designed to weld carbon steel. The operator appeal, bead appearance and spatter is not equal to a gas shielded product, but the benefit of not having to use gas makes this product extremely popular.
