The low hydrogen weld metal provides high notch toughness
and excellent ductility to reduce the risk of cracking.
The electrode is used particularly for pipelines, compressor stations, hot tapping and
associated work using pipe steels in API 5LX52 to X70 grades in the oil and gas distribution
industries, also process piping etc.
Productivity is overall 25-30% faster than cellulosic electrodes and 40-50%
faster than conventional low hydrogen electrodes for welding vertically up.
Welding advice: Keep short arc using beaded or weaved runs.
2.5 mm size can also be welded uphill for increased heat input. DC- is preferred.
