A non-copper-coated solid wire for submerged arc welding with 1.25% Cr and 0.5% Mo content to be used for the welding of creep resistant steel. Low concentration of impurities in the wire is a distinctive characteristic of this consumable. It is used in chemical industry and in the ammonia synthesis process, for heat exchangers, boilers, piping and pressure vessels for temperature service up to 550°C. It will also find applications in the petro-chemical industries, suitable for facing on casting and for casting repairs. To be used with basic fluxes.
