COATED 2594-16

The COATED Superduplex grade 2594 electrodes provide matching chemistry and mechanical property characteristics to wrought superduplex alloys such as 2507 and Zeron 100 as well as superduplex casting alloys (ASTM A890). The welding electrode is overalloyed with 2-3 percent in Nickel to provide the optimum ferrite/austenite ratio in the finished weld. This structure results in high tensile/yield strength and superior resistance to SCC and pitting corrosion.

COATED 308/308H-16

Excellent for use on Type 301, 302, 304, 305 and 308 base metals, the COATED 308/308H is specially formulated with more than .04 carbon to provide maximum elevated temperature strength. It has a smooth running arc that results in a uniform weld bead that is flat to slightly convex. It is also ideal for use as an intermediate layer prior to the deposit of hard-facing materials. It yields a concave weld bead that is smooth and refined.

COATED 308-15

With superior crack resistance of high temperatures, COATED 308-15 provides an excellent intermediate layer prior to deposition of hard-facing material. Specially formulated with more than .04 carbon to give you maximum elevated-temperature strength, it is ideal for use on Types 301, 302, 304, 305 and 308 base metals. It has a convex bead and is an excellent choice when welding highly restrained joints or for crack sensitive materials.
