Applications

Due to weld metal's good notch toughness properties down to - 60°C and up to + 350 C. It is used for welding an alloyed and low alloyed steel structures exposing to low temperatures like LPG holders. Welding of low alloyed high tensile steels when preheating cannot be applied and enclosed joint welding and cladding of rails when a hardness of about 250 HV is required are among its application areas.
