DESCRIPTION

AND

APPLICATION

 

HEAVY COATED LOW HYDROGEN IRON POWDER TYPE ELECTRODE.  The weld deposit contains 2.50% Nickel. The electrode is designed for welding of low alloyed, fine-grained, high tensile strength steels. It gives very good toughness and resistance to embritting effects down to - 60C. Gives radiographic quality weld deposit. Deposition efficiency 115%(approx.).

Recommended for welding of C-Mn and low alloy steel and quenched & tempered steels. Fabrication of parts subjects to low temperature service, extensively for service at cryogenic temperatures.
