Basic covered electrode. Very good welding characteristics including out of position work; 120 % weld metal recovery, H2-content in the weld metal <5ml/100g, very pure cryogenic weld metal at temperatures as low as -50C (-58F); CTOD tested up to -10C (14F). Suitable for use in structural steel work, boiler making, tank construction, ship and bridge building and vehicle manufacture. Particularly suitable for welding fine grained structural steels. Excellent weldability on offshore steels.
