Hi guys, I am about to have to do some welding on some galvanized steel studs, channel, angle, etc. All of it is thin, like 14g +/-. My question is this, in the past, every time I have encountered galvanized material, I would just strip the galvanizing with a multi flap then proceed as normal. With this job, that would be very time consuming and not very realistic. I will be using my millermatic 180. What do you guys suggest I do? Can I use my er70s-6 with 75/25 and have good results? Is there a different wire and or gas combo that is more appropriate that I could run with my machine? Do you have any other suggestions?
I am aware of the hazardous fumes produced from galvanized welding, I will be in a well ventilated area with respirator. Thanks guys.
