Select 115-K3

Low Alloy / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • This electrode is capable of single and multiple pass welding and is designed for 100%CO₂ shielding gas.
  • Meets the same requirements as E11018-M covered electrodes.
  • The arc transfer is globular with a convex bead profile due to the nature of a basic slag system.
  • Excellent low temperature CVN toughness and low diffusible hydrogen levels.
  • Ideal selection for welding high strength, low alloy steels such as T-1, ASTM A514 and HY-100; and for welding abrasion resistant steels in the 300, 350 and 400 series.
