Reliably Feed Aluminum Wire More Than 80 Feet

PRAXAIR'S PROSTAR PREMIUM ALUMINUM WELDING WIRE CAN HELP YOU REDUCE DOWNTIME, MINIMIZE OVERWELDING, AND PROTECT WELD QUALITY.

ProStar “twist-free” aluminum welding wire is the right choice for consistent, high-quality welds, throughput, and quality for automated welding processes. With no cast or helix, users can avoid uneven wear on consumables—typical with standard welding wires—which can cause arc wander, over-welding, feed issues, and shut-downs.

Additionally, ProStar welding wire’s distinctively clean and smooth surface, tight chemistry, and our proprietary drawing, coating, and packaging processes further help to ensure predictive performance and consistent, high-quality welds.

what does twist-free mean?

What Does Twist-Free Mean in a Welding Wire?

PROSTAR™ WELDING WIRE IS THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR WELD PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY -- FORMULATED FOR BOTH MANUAL AND ROBOTIC WELDING.

  • “Twist-free” means the drawing and packaging process results in a product with very little cast or helix – wire comes out of its packaging much straighter compared to standard wires.
  • Wire and arc placement are predictable—it goes where you want and doesn’t flip back and forth—helping to reduce over-welding, waste, and cost/inch.
  • Straighter wire creates less wear points inside a conduit, with reduced possible binding areas and less drag for more consistent feeding.
  • Straighter wire creates uniform contact tip wear, which means that properly sized tips can be used and consumable costs are reduced.
  • Straighter wire provides feed consistency from pack to pack.
  • All of these factors contribute to greater productivity, less downtime, and reduced overall welding costs.
