ER70S-2 is a multi-deoxidized wire that contains small amounts of zirconium, titanium and aluminum in addition to the manganese and silicon deoxidizing agents that are characteristic of the steel wire group. This wire can be used for MIG or TIG welding of all types of soft and carbon steels, resulting in welds of the highest quality with minimal porosity even over rust and mill scale. The ER70S-2 is popular for out-of-position welding with small diameter wires using short-circuit arc transfer. MIG welding can be performed using CO 2, argon-oxygen mixtures, or mixtures of the two.
