Welding wire for steel constructions with very high requirements for mechanical characteristics and weldability.
The perfect spooling, the uniform copper coating, the low torsion in the wire, the small tolerances on the diameter and the high degree of purity, guarantee an optimal and constant welding quality.
The mechanical characteristics are higher than those of most lime type electrodes.
For boiler work, machine building, ship building, sheet metal welding etc…

Gas flow in short arc 8 to 10 liter/min (17-21 cu.ft./hr), in spray arc 12 to 17 liter/min (25-36 cu.ft./hr).
When welding outdoors protect the welding area against wind and draught and increase the gas flow.
The highest mechanical strength is obtained in short arc (Lower burn off of alloying elements.).
Preheat steel 60 in function of the plate thickness.
