Description & applications

A semi-basic flux suitable for the multi-run and two-run technique using single or multi-wire processes up to 5 wires. The flux exhibits good weldability characteristics over a wide range of welding parameters and is characterized by a low consumption rate.

Excellent slag release and good weld bead performance providing flat welds with low reinforcement are additional features of the flux.

Uniform mechanical properties are obtained in the weld deposits as a result of the constant metallurgical behaviour of the flux and low hydrogen levels. High toughness values down to -20°C and low hardness levels are also achieved in two-run welds.
