Select EM14KS

Carbon Steel / Submerged Arc / Flux Shielded


Features

  • Intended for single and multiple pass welding of carbon and certain low alloy steels, and can be substituted anywhere that a solid EM14K electrode is used.
  • Produces a weld deposit chemistry similar to EM14K solid wire electrodes.
  • Higher deposition rates than solid wire when run at the same current level.
  • Exhibits a broader and shallower bead profile than when using solid wire, reducing the tendency for burn through.
  • Capable of running directly over root passes with proper procedure – eliminating requirement for a hot pass.
  • Easy slag removal – reduces post weld cleanup time.
  • Weld-metal deposit chemistry meets the requirements of ASME A1 deposit with Manganese (Mn) of 1.60 Max
  • The recommended flux is ArcFlux BF-10MW.
