Select 101 SR

Low Alloy / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Intended for single and multiple pass welding of quenched and tempered steels that require a postweld stress relief.
  • Excellent high strength properties in the as-welded condition.
  • This electrode is designed for 75-80% argon – balance carbon dioxide; the use of 100 percent carbon dioxide should be avoided.
  • The rutile based fast freezing slag facilitates welding in all positions, with moderate slag volume and easy removal.
  • Select 101-SR is designed to weld oil field components that require a postweld stress relief. However, it is not designed for postweld quench and temper treatments. Select 4130LN should be used if the weldment is to receive postweld quench and temper.
  • Also be used to weld high strength, low alloy steels where 100 ksi minimum tensile strength and excellent toughness are required in the as welded condition.
