TIG Rods range for C-Mn steels and low-alloy steels.

CARBOROD Ni1 is a copper coated W3Ni1/ER 80S-Ni1 type solid TIG welding rod depositing a C-0.8Mn 1.0Ni weld metal. Suitable for use with Ar shielding gas.
It meets the classifications:
       - EN ISO 636-A: W 46 6 W3Ni1
       - AWS A5.28: ER 80S-Ni1


CARBOROD Ni1 is used for welding of 1%Ni steels and fine grain steels, when the weld metal toughness properties down to –60°C are required in the as welded conditions. The weld metal contains less than 1%Ni conforming to NACE requirement. TIG rod for welding 1% Ni alloy and fine grain steels for low temperature applications.

Available in TUB. Diameter from 1,6 to 3,2
