Stainless steels joining with a low fume and low hexavalent chromium concentration

Stainless steel stick electrodes suitable for joining similar austenitic, austenitic steels to ferritic steels, dissimilar steels, and stainless cladding. The reduced welding fume and the lower hexavalent Cr content of the fume contribute to an improved working environment in your workshop, for all your workers. Advantageous in confined spaces and with limited fume extraction systems. Excellent striking and re-striking. Arc transfer is more stable and concentrated thanks to the OERLIKON double coated technology, with good wetting of the joint faces, finely-rippled bead surface, easy slag removal.
