Flux Core Wire
Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW or FCA) is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process. FCAW requires a
continuously-fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant-voltage or, less commonly, a constant-
current welding power supply. An externally supplied shielding gas is sometimes used, but often the flux itself
is relied upon to generate the necessary protection from the atmosphere. The process is widely used in construction
because of its high welding speed and portability.
