KAWAT LAS WELDING ELECTRODES NIKKO STEEL RD-260
SPECIFICATION = AWS A5.1 / BS EN ISO 2560-B / JIS Z 3211
CLASSIFICATION = E6013 / E4313 / D4313
The design emphasis of the flux is engineered to produce a fluid but quick
freezing slag so facilitating all positional welding including vertical down. The
balanced rutile, cellulosic flux containing both alloying and deoxidizing elements
is extruded on to a mild steel wire with a blend of silicates that ensures coating
strength and stability.
WELDING FEATURES OF THE ELECTRODE
The electrode welds with a smooth stable arc on both AC and DC. Spatter is
minimal. Weld seams are smooth, bright and evenly rippled. Initial arc strike and
re-strike are instant. For flat and vertical down welding use amperages towards
the top end and for vertical up and overhead towards the bottom of range. Slag
detachability is excellent and metal recovery is up to 90% with respect to weight
of core wire.
