A reliable, general purpose electrode for manual metal arc welding of carbon steels, carbon manganese steels and fine-grained carbon manganese steels with elevated yield strength. OK 48.00 deposits a tough, crack-resistant weld metal. The coating is of the low moisture absorption type. High welding speed in the vertical-up position. OK 48.00 is insensitive to the composition of the base material within fairly wide limits. The electrode can be used for welding structures where difficult stress conditions cannot be avoided.
Reliable, low hydrogen electrodes for general applications
For mild and low-alloy steels. They deposit a consistently tough, crack-resistant weld metal and achieve high welding speed. These electrodes are relatively insensitive to the base material composition. A general electrode performing well on a wide number of base materials, perfect for welding structures where high stress conditions cannot be avoided.
Low hydrogen electrodes for welding at AC/DC current
Increases the flexibility of using all types of welding equipment. Welding high recovery electrodes in AC current increases the deposit, delivers an excellent-quality weld metal with very good mechanical properties and self-released slag.
Exceptional, all-position electrodes
For critical applications requiring special impacts at low temperatures. They provide a smooth, stable arc with very low spatter. Excellent arc starting is enhanced by a special graphite tip on the electrode. Complete slag coverage provides easy removal and minimal post weld clean-up, improving productivity. Intended for a wide variety of carbon, low alloy, and hard enable steels.
