Arcos Industries LLC offers two bare-wire and covered stainless steel electrodes designed to help enhance productivity for specific welding applications.
Arcos 320/320LR is primarily used for pipe welding. It maintains corrosion resistance and produces a high-purity weld deposit, which reduces weld metal fissuring.
Arcos 410 electrodes generally are used for welding alloys of similar composition and for the deposition of overlays on carbon steel to resist corrosion, erosion, and abrasion. These 12 percent chromium-alloy electrodes are air-hardened and require preheat and postheat treatments to achieve welds of adequate ductility for many engineering purposes.
Bare-wire versions of these electrodes are available in diameters from 0.035 to 0.1875 in. The covered electrode versions are offered in diameters ranging from 0.093 to 0.1875 in.
