Elga P48M E7018 Unalloyed Drypac Electrodes
P 48M is a basic coated low hydrogen DC+ electrode designed for welding mild and higher strength steels.
It is particularly suitable for heavily restrained sections and also steels with higher impurity levels
The electrode operates with a very smooth and stable arc and shows no tendency to ”freeze”, even on low current.
Root passes can be welded with DC-.
P 48M has very good fracture toughness at temperatures down to -50 °C.
