Suitable for welding fabrication of dynamically loaded heavy steel constructions, bridge, shipbuilding, pipe line, pressure vessels, tanks, boiler and machines where mechanical properties are required. Weld metal exhibits good toughness properties down to -50°C and produce tough and crack-free welded joints even on steels having a carbon content of up to 0.4%. Weld metal recovery amounts to approx. 120%. Welds are of X-ray quality. Electrode is suitable for depositing buffer layers on higher carbon steels.
