ES 300 / EN 14700: E Fe1
ES 300 is a heavily coated basic electrode particularly used for wear conditions where impact stresses are considered. It gives a weld metal that is resistant to deformations of high rolling forces including metal-to-metal friction. Weld metal is air hardenable and can be machined with carbide cutting tools. Hardness varies with respect to the number of passes and cooling rate. It has about 115 % metal recovery.
