DESCRIPTION

AND

APPLICATION

 

HEAVY COATED LOW HYDROGEN IRON POWDER TYPE ELECTRODE. The weld deposit contains 1.0% 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 -51C. 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, Refinery pressure vessels and valves.
