This Stainless Steel Electrode produces a very high tensile strength (120,000 PSI), as a result it is one of the most widely used stainless steel electrodes for arc welding.
It can be used for dissimilar steels, abrasion-resistant steels, hardening steels, armour steels and spring steels. It can also be used as a wear resistant build-up and buffer for layer hardfacing.
This electrode may be used in all positions. It produces a crack resistant, porosity-free weld deposit. May be used in any position in AC or DC (reverse polarity).
Sizes: 3/32" or 1/8"
Also Available: #290029 — 5 lb. package (1/8")
