SUPRAMAX – 9018 B3

Classification :  AWS  :     E9018-B3 , BIS  :  E 63 B-B3-2-6-Fe

Characteristics  :   This is a medium   heavy coated, hydrogen controlled, iron powder type all positions electrode depositing a weldment of the type 2.25% Cr and 1% Mo suitable for welding of high tensile chrome-moly steel. The weld metal is sound and of radio graphic quality and excellent mechanical strength and creep resistance at temp, upto 500°C.

Applications : It finds extensive use in fabrication of low alloy steel boilers and piping operating at temperature upto 600°C in oil refinery, thermal and chemical plants, super heaters for steam boilers, pipelines working at high temperature and especially for hydro crackers.
