It conforms to American Welding Society (AWS) 5.20/A5.20M: 2005 E71T-1C-H8 and E71T-9C-H8 and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) 3YSA H10.

This new wire initially is available in 0.045, 0.052 and 1/16 in. (1.1, 1.3 and 1.6 mm) wire diameters wound on 15 lb (7 kg) plastic spools, 33 lb (15 kg) fiber spools and 50 lb (23 kg) coils. For more information on Lincoln Electric’s new UltraCore HD-C, call (888) 355-3213 or visit to obtain bulletin C3.12.5. The Lincoln Electric Company, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, is the world leader in the design, development and manufacture of arc welding products, robotic arc welding systems, fume control systems, plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipment and has a leading global position in the brazing and soldering alloys market.
