Rutile-coated electrode designed for welding austenitic steels and heat-resistant steels up to 1150°C. Intended for welding steels with similar chemical composition and cast iron with 25% Cr and 20% Ni content. Suitable for vessels (designed for high temperature service up to 1200°C), heaters, petrochemical and ceramic industry and wherever the high resistance at elevated temperatures is required. This electrode is also used for welding dissimilar steels and their heterogeneous joint, including those with PWHT, and for buffer layers. Suitable for all positions, very good looking weld bead and easily removable slag.
