The Lincoln Electric Company Introduces New Millennium Arc 7018 Welding Consumable

The Millennium Arc 7018 is designed for various applications: mild steel, power generation, petrochemical, pressure vessels and pressure piping. It has no intentional addition of zinc in its composition, which means significantly less zinc in the welding fume and a safer environment, overall.
