Select Ni2S

Low Alloy / Submerged Arc / Flux Shielded


Features

  • Contains 2.00-2.90% nickel to produce a ductile deposit with good low temperature toughness.
  • Select Ni2S is ideal for applications involving the welding of carbon and certain low alloy steels, in applications where low temperature toughness is required.
  • 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 clean up time
  • Arcflux BF-10MW helps to maximize the impact properties and is the recommended flux. Other basic fluxes can be used as well.
