Bostrand LW1 from Murex Welding Products is a general purpose mild steel copper coated MAG (metal active gas) spooled welding wire. It is claimed to produce quality welds with excellent radiographic and mechanical properties and is suitable for welding most mild and carbon-manganese steels such as Lloyds grades A to EH (up to EH32).

Bostrand LW1 is available in 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, and 1.6mm diameters.

Typical all-weld mechanical prop- erties, as welded using Ar/20% CO2, are: Yield Stress 480MPA, Tensile Strength 560MPA, Elongation 26%, Charpy V impact value, Typical -20°C 90J -30°C 70J Wires Bostrand LW1 has a number of approvals including ABS: 3YSA (M21); BV: SA3YM (M21) CE EN 13479; LR: 3S, 3YS DNV: 111 YMS.

Bostrand LW1 uses Ar/20 CO2 mixtures or CO2 as the shielding gas.

In addition to improved arc stability, the improved Bostrand LW1 has uniform wire feed properties, no problems with copper flaking and reduced corrosion risk.
