DESCRIPTION

AND

APPLICATION

 

HEAVY COATED, LOW HYDROGEN, IRON POWDER type electrode depositing weld metal containing 0.60% Cr, 0.70% Ni, 0.50% Cu. It gives good resistance to atmospheric corrosion and also gives radiographic quality weld deposit. Deposition efficiency is 115% (approx.).

Recommended for welding CORTEN steels used in chemical, petrochemical railway industries to resist atmospheric corrosion. For welding high tensile steels and steel containing approx.

Cr-0.5%, Ni-0.5%, Cu-0.5%, or only Cr-0.5%, Cu-0.5%.
