Welding wire and welding rods

Sandvik’s welding consumables acquired by ESAB

Sandvik’s welding consumables business has been acquired by ESAB from February 1, 2018. Over the coming months ESAB will be integrating the Sandvik portfolio, to provide a smooth transition for customers. During the integration period, the full line of Sandvik welding products will continue to be accessible on this website, or via the ESAB website.

Sandvik welding wire and rods are filler metals optimized for MIG (GMAW), TIG (GTAW), plasma-arc (PAW) and submerged-arc welding (SAW). These are available in high performance stainless steels and nickel alloys, designed to increase productivity and lower production cost.

Lower production cost and higher performance is the name of the game for corrosion resistant alloy manufacturing. Sandvik produces filler metals from melting of raw materials to finished wire and rods. Characteristics of Sandvik wire are as follows:

  • Chemical composition optimized for each welding process
  • Controlled ferrite content and extremely low impurity levels for resistance to hot cracking and microfissuring
  • Microelement control for optimum arc stability, wetting characteristics with extremely low spatter
  • Controlled wire surface for trouble-free mechanized welding
  • Alloy design for the optimum corrosion resistance and mechanical properties
