Base Materials

Mild steels and low alloy steels.

Suitable flux: BF 44

Flux type suitability is strongly dependent on its application. In combination with the strip electrode the most suitable flux should match the requirements of the plate material as closely as possible under the existing welding conditions. Further information can be obtained from the technical flux data sheets.

Package Forms

Coils or wound spools as standard package forms for strip electrodes.

Dimensions

30 x 0.5 mm, 60 x 0.5 mm; sizes and tolerances acc. to ISO 544 and AWS A5.9.
Other dimensions on request.

Strip Electrode Surface

Smooth finish free from surface defects and foreign matter.
