Electrode having monel core wire, designed for joining and surfacing welds of Monel-clad steels. Suitable for joining Monel alloys to steel weld surfacing of steel with corrosion-resistant Monel coating. The weld metal is free of porosity and resistant to many chemicals. Suitable for applications with working temperatures from -196°C to 450°C. Weld groove preparation and cleaning should be done carefully. Generally welding should be done in horizontal position with short stick-out distance without weaving. Due to porosity risk of the weld metal, welding and striking shall be started on end plate. Possible to use with DCEP.
