Select 80W-S

Low Alloy / Submerged Arc / Flux Shielded


Features

  • This electrode is designed to be used in applications where weathering steel is used. Typical applications include use in bridges and other structural applications of weathering steels such as ASTM A588, A242 and A709-50W.
  • The weld deposit chemistry is designed to approximate the composition of the base metal, thus matching the mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and color.
  • The recommended flux is ArcFlux BF-10MW.
