1/4" 718MC Low Hydrogen Electrode, 50 lb. Can, 80000 PSI Tensile Strength

Low moisture absorption Easy slag removal Low spatter in all positions Good wetting action Reliable starts and restarts Very stable arcBenefits: Reduces worry of moisture pick-up and hydrogen cracking Eliminates going back to oven for "fresh" electrodes Reduces clean-up time Results in excellent weld bead appearance Enhances bead contour Provides better welds due to no porosity Easy to controlApplications: Single and multiple pass, DCEP, AC Offshore rigs Shipbuilding Boiler code applications Field erections Steel structures Petrochemical plants Power plates Enameling steels Weldments Free machining steels Low alloy structures Low, medium, high carbon steels Railroad and locomotive constructionRecommended Welding Techniques: ARC Length: Very short arc (less than half the diameter of the electrode) Flat: Angle electrode 10-15 from 90 Vertical-Up: Use weaving technique, but do not use oscillation or whipping motion Vertical-Down: Not recommended Overhead: Use slight weaving motion within the puddleConformances and Approvals: AWS A5.1, E7018 H4R/E7018-1 H4R ASME SFA 5.1, F-4, A-1 E7018 ABS, 3, 3Y H5 MIL-E-22200/10 C
