A double-coated electrode consists of two separate layers:
1. The “outer layer” with higher basicity
2. The rutile type “inner layer”
The arc-stabilizing minerals and metal powders are concentrated in the inner coating, and the minerals delivering the gas shielding are concentrated in the outer coating. This combination enables unique weldability characteristics.
1. Outer basic layer; 2. CORE WIRE; 3. Inner rutile layer
Extremely flexible Mild Steels applications (S(P) 235; S(P) 355; GP 240; GP 280; L 245 and L 260) from structural steelwork to piping.
The composition of double coating allows for exceptional weldability. Particularly suitable for root passes: highly stable and directional arc facilitates high gaps bridging and irregular gaps welding in Vertical up position.
