WHY CHOOSE WELDCLASS 16XT ELECTRODES ?
> User Friendly: Very Smooth & Stable Arc, Easy Striking, Low Spatter, Easy Slag Removal
> Hydrogen controlled, for welding mild & high-strength (carbon-manganese) steels up to 510MPa
> All-Positional (except for vertical down) & excellent weld appearance
2KG VACUUM FOIL SEALED PACKS - REDUCES WASTE & MOISTURE EXPOSURE !
> Vacuum foil sealed packs keeps moisture out, right up to the point of use
> Smaller pack size reduces waste & minimises exposure to atmospheric moisture
WHY IS IT IMPORANT TO AVOID MOISTURE ?
> Air contains moisture (humidity) and any electrode exposed to air will absorb moisture
> This inceases hydrogen levels in the electrode (water 'H2O' contains hydrogen 'H')
> Increased hydrogen compromises the strength & mechanical properties of the weld
> Moisture can also negatively affect the arc characteristics of the electrode
> Mining maintenance & fabrication
> Structural steel & site welding
> Rural maintenance
> Pipe construction
> Boilers & pressure vessels
> Build up or buffer layer prior to hard facing
> Single sided weld joints
> AWS A5.1 E7016 H10
> AS/NZS 1553.1 (old) E4946
> AS/NZS 4855: (new) B E4916 A U H10
> EN ISO 2560-A: E 38 2B H10
TYPICAL MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
> Yield Strength: 470 MPa
> Tensile Strength: 540 MPa
> Elongation: 26%
> Impact Strength (CVN): 70J @ -20c / 50J @ -30c
WHAT ELSE ?
> Suitable for all DC or AC welding machines
> Q: Does the vacuum foil seal avoid the need for pre-drying electrodes in an oven?
A: This depends on the application. At the point of opening a sealed pack, 16XT electrodes will almost certainly contain less moisture than electrodes that are not vacuum sealed - however electrodes ovens should still be used in critical situations or when specified in the weld procedure.
> Q: How many rods per pack/KG ?
2.6mm = approx. 50 rods per KG / 125 rods per 2.5kg pkt
3.2mm = approx. 33 rods per KG / 83 rods per 2.5kg pkt
