A low heat input, all position, electrode designed to produce high tensile, smooth, and porosity free welds without undercut or spatter.
Welding low, medium, and high alloy steels requiring the highest strength and quality. Ideal for repair of tools, dies, springs, carbon steels, stainless steels, pressure vessels, aircraft steels, vanadium-moly spring steels, and as an underlayment or pad prior to applying hard facing alloys. Commonly used for joining stainless steels of unknown analysis and these steels to carbon steels. Also used for rebuilding shafts and blades used in the chemical, construction, and mining industries and for broken stud removal.
|Tensile Strength||Up to 180,000 PSI (1241 N/mm²)
|Yield Strength||Up to 90,000 PSI (621 N/mm²)|
|Hardness||Approx. 300 HB|
|Current||AC or DC reverse polarity (Electrode Positive)|
Prepare the joint area by removing foreign material. Bevel heavy sections to form a 90º vee. Hardenable alloys should be preheated. Use jigs, fixtures, and tack welds to maintain alignment. Hold a short arc. Stringer beads are preferred to prevent overheating. Allow to cool before removing slag. Deposits will take a high polish when subjected to wear.
