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

 

E8018-C3

< CLICK HERE for additional information on this alloy >

E8018-C3 welding electrode is designed for
1% nickel applications as well as 80,000
tensile strength applications. These electrodes
provide excellent puddle control with good
wetting action and tie in, have good arc
characteristics and easy slag removal.
WMS 8018-C3 electrodes will provide notch
toughness of 20-ft•lbs at 40ºF. The coating
is specially formulated to resist conditions of
high heat and humidity. It is also resistant to
moisture reabsorption which helps prevent
hydrogen cracking and aids in eliminating
starting porosity. These electrodes have high
operator appeal.


Applications
• 80,000 tensile steels of both commercial
and military applications
