It has a special formulated clear polymer based waterproof coating, to ensure the maximum resistance to water and moisture penetration is achieved. The electrode also allows for higher levels of misuse in its handling and care, and provides electrical insulation for improved diver safety.
The electrode has a particularly smooth, soft arc characteristic that welders find very pleasing and easy to use. The electrode produces a superb weld finish and the slag is easily removed. It offers easy striking and re-striking and may be used in all positions. The electrode provides for excellent mechanical properties.
