Properties and Applications
Rutile coated electrode for welding austenitic stainless Cr-Ni steels or cast steels, having an extra low carbon content, as well as stainless or heat resisting chromium steels or cast steels. Suitable for welding stainless steel tanks, valves, pipes and linings in chemical, food, beverage, pharmaceutical industries. For operating temperatures of up to +350°C, non-scaling up to +800°C. Possible to use equally well both with AC and DC. Easy arc striking and re-striking. Fine metal droplet transfer, good fusion of joint faces, finely rippled bead surface, easily removable slag.
