DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATION

Smooth running, basic low hydrogen electrode, developed for all positional (except vertical down) welding, using AC or DC power sources. It has exceptional arc stability and weldability and delivers high quality weld deposits with reliable notch toughness to - 40 ̊C. Austarc 16TC is manufactured using a unique twin coating extrusion process, which means all the arc stabilising elements are concentrated in the inner coating. This delivers significantly improved arc stability and control for all applications.
