MicroGuard UltraSuperArc copper-coated and SuperGlide bare wire contain MicroGuard Ultra—a lubricating surface treatment with arc-enhancing chemistry to reduce spatter and create a more stable arc. It also eliminates the wavy appearance that can occur as the wire bumps or lurches through the gun liner during welding. Benefits to using this wire include optimal puddle follow, increased travel speeds, reduced spatter and chance of porosity.
