AMETEK SMP Weld Wire Sheathing is used in both Flux Core and Metal Core processes. Our sheathing is formed into a tubular product by our customers and the center of the tube contains the ‘fill’ (flux, metal powders, etc) to bring the wire to the desired chemistry. The finished wire is used across a wide breadth of industries in processes such as Submerged Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Wire Arc Thermal Spray.
Our Pure Nickel sheathing materials find end-uses in environments where the non-corrosive properties of the nickel will help to shield structures from the chemicals that they contain. The retained strength of nickel products at high temperatures and resistance to abrasion further enhance the suitability of nickel in these harsh environments.
