Covered electrode welds nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys
Arcos Industries LLC offers Arcos 1N12, a high-nickel covered electrode used to weld nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys to themselves and to steel. It is also suitable for welding 5 and 9 percent nickel steels for low-temperature service to themselves, to low alloys, and to stainless steel.
The electrode is used for piping systems and reactor components in the power generation industry and for high-temperature service in other engineering applications, including petrochemical plants and furnace equipment.
Providing moderate strength and high-corrosion resistance from cryogenic temperatures to 1,800 degrees F, the electrode resists corrosion and is virtually immune to chloride-ion stress-corrosion cracking, the company reports.
