Properties And Applications

Rutile type stainless steel electrode for welding stabilized Cr-Ni-Mo austenitic stainless and cast steels. Suitable for using operating temperatures up to 400°C. Especially used for welding of stainless steels acid, salt and alkaline tanks, valves and pipes in chemical, textile, paint and paper industries. Possible to use equally well both with AC and DC. Easy arc striking and re-striking. Fine-droplet metal transfer, good wash-in of joint sides, easily removable slag.
