Copper-coated solid wire for submerged arc welding with 5.5% Cr and 0.5% Mo content to be used for the welding of creep resistant steel. It will find applications in chemical or petro-chemical industry and in the ammonia synthesis process. It is also used for heat exchangers, boilers, piping and pressure vessels for temperature service up to 600°C. The weld metal has also been used for subsequent nitriding in the petro-chemical industries; for example in the repair of some steels used for moulds for injection-moulding of plastics. To be used with basic fluxes, such as INEFLUX MP.
