ECu (Copper Electrode)

< CLICK HERE for additional information on this alloy >

ECu  is a pure copper electrode used for joining and build-up on copper parts requiring corrosion resistance and thermal and/or electrical conductivity.  A preheat of 750degrees-1100degrees F should be used for thicker sections.  Use as large an electrode as possible and maintain a short arc.

 

Typical Applications:  joining and build-up of copper parts
