I recently had the guy at my local welding supply store tell me that USAB
coreshield 11 self-shielding wire is only about as strong as E6011 stick
electrode even though it has a E71T-11 classification. So I look up the
esab website for this wire:
and I find that there is a yeld strength and tensile strength field so I was
wondering just what the difference is?
if yeld strenth is just how strong the weld is then yes I would say he was
correct in telling me that the coreshield is only that stong. However the
tensile strengh is rated much highter. Now I thought or was always taught
that welding electrodes and wires were rated by their tensile strength!.
So the coreshield wire should be rated as a E90T-11 wire shouldn't it?.
