Central Steel Service Introduces Cor-Match™

Cot-Match Weathering Steel Wire and Electrode

Central Steel Service Introduces Cor-Match™

Central Steel Service has added Cor-Match™ products to compliment its high-quality supply line of high-strength, high-strength weathering and abrasion resistant steels. Cor-Match™ is a weathering steel wire and electrode that serves as a weld metal that matches the corrosion resistance and the patina color of weathering steels. 

Cor-Match™ 80-CW vs. 810-W 

Cor-Match™ 80-CW and 810-W are both low-alloy steel electrodes for single- and multiple-pass welding of self-weathering steels per ASTM A588, A606-4, A242, A709-50W and A847 where color match and corrosion resistance are required. While both products share some characteristics, there are some differences.

Cor-Match™ 80-CW is a composite, metal-cored electrode for FLAT AND HORIZONTAL welding of weathering steels. 80-CW welds in a pure spray transfer, using 75-80% argon-balance carbon dioxide resulting in a spatter emission that is nearly non-existent. The penetrating characteristics of this tubular electrode are better than most solid electrodes because it eliminates the “cold-lap” or lack of fusion on heavier plate or scaled areas. 80-CW also generates less fume than flux-cored electrodes making it useful where slag removal and cleanup present problems. 

Cor-Match™ 810-W is a gas-shielded, flux-cored electrode for ALL POSITION welding of weathering steels. The spray transfer, thin slag, which removes easily and cleanly appeals to welders. Plus, it provides a smooth bead profile.

Cor-Match™ Application

The purpose of Cor-Match™ 80-CW and 810-W is to provide weld metal that matches the corrosion resistance and the orange/brown patina color of self-weathering steels used in unpainted applications, such as bridge construction, transmission pole fabrication, building facades and other structural components used in a variety of steel fabrication projects.
