1/8" 418 Low Hydrogen Electrode, All Position, 50 Lb Hermetically Sealed Can, 70000 PSI Minimum Tensile Strength(AWS Spec)
Effortless starts - No starting porosity; ideal for tacking; increases productivity Low moisture absorption rate - Reduces potential for hydrogen cracking Very stable arc with low spatter - Ideal for all positions; produces good looking welds; reduces clean-up time Good wetting action - Produces a flat bead contour; prevents cold lap and undercutting Easy slag removal - Quick clean-up, increases productivityApplications: Single and multiple pass, DCEP, AC, All Position Power, petrochemical and boiler plants Steel structures/field erections Shipbuilding/barge offshore drilling rigs Rail cars General fabrication/maintenance Non-alloyed and fine grain steels Heavy equipment fabrication and repairRecommended Welding Techniques: ARC Length: Less than half the diameter of the electrode: Flat: Angle electrode 10-15 from 90 Horizontal: Angle electrode slightly toward top plate Vertical-Up: Use weaving technique Vertical-Down: Not recommended Overhead: Use slight weaving motion within puddleConformances and Approvals: AWS A5.1, E7018 H4R, E7018-1 H4R AWS A5.1M, E4918 ASME SFA5.1, F-4, A-1 E7018 H4R ABS, 3H5, 3Y CWB, E4918-1-H4 Lloyd"s Register, BF3, 3YMH5, 3MH5
