Select 74

Carbon Steel / Flux Cored / Self Shielded


Features

  • This electrode is intended for flat position welding of grooves and fillets and horizontal fillet welding with extremely high deposition rates.
  • The highly basic slag minimizes hot cracking on steels high in sulfur.
  • Slag detachment is quite good, and the bead profile is slightly convex.
  • Typical applications are light gauge steel plate fabrication or general purpose fabrication of carbon steels.
  • Select 74 is also a good choice in poor fit up situations or when extended stickouts must be used in hard-to-reach areas.
