Select 100C

Low Alloy / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Intended for single and multiple pass welding of some carbon and certain low alloy steels, in the flat and horizontal positions, where a minimum tensile strength of 100,000 psi is required in the deposited weld metal.
  • The arc is normally a pure spray transfer, with virtually no spatter emission.
  • This electrode is well suited to joining low alloy, high strength steels, such as HY-80, A710, and A514.
  • Suitable for use in shipbuilding, earthmoving equipment, and mining machinery, to name a few applications.
  • This electrode is an ideal choice for those weldments where distortion must be minimized, and de-slagging is not desirable.
