Nickel-alloy electrode engineered for rigorous environments
Select-Arc Inc. has introduced a gas-shielded, flux-cored, nickel-based electrode designed to tackle critical welding applications in demanding environments such as desalination plants, petrochemical facilities, power generation plants, and temperature-critical conditions.
The all-position SelectAlloy 182-AP wire is an ENiCrFe-3 class electrode. Resistant to hot cracking, it produces uniform, well-washed beads with minimal weaving, very low spatter, and excellent slag peeling, the company states.
The electrode is available in 0.045 and 0.0625-in. diameters.
