DESCRIPTION

AND

APPLICATION

 

HEAVY COATED LOW HYDROGEN IRON POWDER TYPE ELECTRODE with outstanding impact toughness at sub zero temperatures. The weld metal is of radiographic quality. Deposition efficiency is approx. 115% of the core wire. The electrode is designed for welding low alloy steels used for pressure vessels and other applications where high strength must be maintained after extended PWHT cycles. Also used for welding high strength steels requiring good subzero toughness for oil field and well head equipment.
