A 15kg spool of 1.2mm Selfshielding 600 Flux Cored Hardfacing MIG Wire – Has a good balance of impact and abrasion resistance. With excellent welding properties this hard alloy wire is suitable to be used with or without gas.  As a result of the wire being exposed to the heat of the welding arc a chemical reaction takes place which creates the shielding gas.  Hence there is no requirement for an external gas cylinder.  However an additional shielding gas can be used which is referred to as Dual Shield. The act of dual shielding reduces weld spatter, lowers fume emissions and increases control of welding parameters.

Selfshield 600 has numerous applications across many industries including mining and earthmoving for the hard face of excavators and mining equipment.  In addition it is also used for agriculture machinery and steel manufacturing.


  • Superior Wear Resistance: Selfshield 600 Flux Cored Hard Facing MIG Wire is able to create weld deposits with exceptional hardness. These weld deposits exhibit high wear resistance, protecting components from abrasive and erosive forces.
  • Versatility in Applications: Highly versatile and can be used across a wide range of industries and applications.
  • Excellent Hardness Range: Due to the wire’s composition and manufacturing process. Which creates a weld deposit with a hardness range of 55-65 HRC (Rockwell Hardness C scale). This hardness level strikes the right balance between wear resistance and toughness. Consequently making it suitable for various applications that require resistance to both abrasion and impact.
  • Enhanced Welding Efficiency: Flux Cored Hard Facing MIG Wire enables faster and more efficient welding compared to traditional hard-facing methods. As a self-shielded wire, it eliminates the need for time-consuming setup and handling of shielding gases, streamlining the welding process and reducing overall welding time.
  • Resistance to Cracking and Fracturing: This characteristic ensures that the weld deposits can withstand heavy loads, shocks, and vibrations without cracking or fracturing. Which as a result provides added reliability and safety to welded components.
