Rutile-basic coated electrode for welding fully austenitic highly corrosion resistant stainless steels as 904L, B6 . Good weldability in all positions, except vertical down, stable arc, good slag removal, regular finely rippled weld beads. Due to its alloy composition, high Mo-content and Cu, the weld metal is suited against attacks by phosphoric- and sulphuric acids, it shows a high resistance against pitting and stress corrosion in chloride containing media. It is used at operation temperatures up to 400°C.
Main applications: Pulp and paper industry, transport containers, installations of the chemical industry.
