Product Overview

  • 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.
