SUPRAMAX – 18

Classification :  AWS :  E7018 , BIS   : EB5426H2JX

Characteristics : This Is a heavy coated, low hydrogen – Iron powder, all positions electrode with very smooth arc, nominal spatter and medium penetration. Extremely ductile weld metal is crack resistant. Recommended for heavy structures subjected to dynamic loading & mechanical restraint. Electrode delivers welds of radiographic quality with a deposition efficiency of 115% approx.

Applications : For castings replaced by heavy welded fabrications, pressure vessels, penstocks, bridges, for root passes in heavy structures subjected to mechanical restraint and dynamic loading, boilers. Specially for IS-2062, steel having thickness beyond 20mm and carbon steel of any thickness.
