Product Description

It is particularly suitable for offshore, chemical industry, hydro power plants and general construction applications. This electrode offers excellent operability and is particularly suitable for downhand butt and fillet welding applications, the 2.5mm and 3.2mm diameter electrodes can be used for positional welding.

Exhibits a stable spray arc transfer resulting in excellent weld bead shape and appearance with a slight concave profile in horizontal vertical fillet welds. There is very little spatter and in  combination with the self-releasing slag, post welding cleaning time is maintained to a minimum. Under wet corrosive conditions suitable for operating temperatures up to 400°C, resistant to scaling up to 800°C. Easy arc striking and restriking. Suitable for use with either AC [minimum OCV 50V] or DC positive. Efficiency 100%. Semi-basic electrode for welding AISI 316 austenitic stainless steels. Excellent resistance to marine corrosion.
