Low Hydrogen Electrode for Welding High Tensile Steel

AXIS is a low hydrogen type electrode containing iron powder for ordinary low alloy steel. As the covering contains iron powder, it welds with high efficiency, the melting rate is around 110%. It operates in all positions on DC and AC (AC open circuit voltage > 70V). The deposited metal has high plasticity, better toughness, and crack resistance.


For welding structures, piping, pressure vessels, boilers, storage tanks, heavy-duty equipment, general maintenance, and fabrication. For welding key structures and 55 kg/mm2  class high tensile steel of ships and bridges.

Note on usage: Dry electrodes at 350°C for one hour before use
