Lincoln Electric Offers New Buy America Welding Consumables

Cleveland — Lincoln Electric introduces Buy America welding consumables to meet the Buy America requirements for infrastructure rebuild projects related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

The Buy America requirements are applicable to most ARRA funded projects and mandate that contractors involved in infrastructure work must use welding consumables made with steel melted in the United States.

Lincoln's Buy America consumables, ordered through Lincoln’s Specials Department, feature the same industry-leading performance as their standard counterparts but are manufactured using green rod or strip melted in U.S. steel mills.

Buy America products include:

- Stick Electrode – Excalibur® 7018 MR, Excalibur® 7018-1 MR

- Flux-Core Wire – UltraCore® 71C, UltraCore® 71A85, UltraCore® 71A75 Dual

- Submerged Arc Wire – Lincolnweld® L-61® and Lincolnweld® LA-75
