Products >> A5.5, LOW ALLOY STEEL Covered Arc Welding Electrodes

 

E8018-B2

 

E8018-B2 welding electrode is for higher strength steels with tensile strengths greater than 80,000 pounds.  The coating is specially formulated to resist moisture pick-up under conditions of high heat and humidity.  This electrode offers resistance to moisture reabsorption which helps prevent hydrogen cracking and aids in elimination of starting porosity.

 

Typical Applications: fabrication and maintenance of boilers and associated piping
