Core wire alloyed electrode with rutile-basic coating for joints between dissimilar steels, steels that are hard to weld and 14% Mn steels. Well suited for tough intermediate layers in case of hardfacing. Properties of the weld metal: suitable for strain-hardening, very good cavitation resistance, crack resistant, resistant to thermal shock, resistant to scaling up to +850°C, little tendency to sigma-phase embrittlement above 500°C. Heat treatment is possible. Consultation with the manufacturer is recommended for operating temperatures above +650°C. Exceptional toughness of the weld metal even at high dilution levels with hard-to-weld steels or when subject to thermal shock. Cryogenic down to -100°C. Stable arc even with AC power.
