A high strength, bright finish, steel welding rod that responds to heat treatment, flame hardening and cyaniding. Conforms to AWS A5.2, R60.
Widely used for welding carbon steel pipes in power plants, process piping and other conditions of severe services. Use where minimum tensile strength of the steel does not exceed 60 psi.
- Use a neutral flame; however, a very slight excess of acetylene assures the absence of an oxidizing flame that adversely influences weld quality.
- Flux is not needed, but "puddling of the molten weld metal will bring any scale or impurities to the surface.
