FOR STANDARD PACKAGING


Electrodes provided by Selectarc in standard packaging shall be used under the following considerations:

VACUUM PACKAGING
Basic coated electrodes provided by Selectarc in vaccum packaging shall be used under the following considerations:

STORAGE AND PRECAUTION


COMMON RULES FOR ELECTRODES STORAGE ARE: First-In/ First-Out (FIFO) ; Separating electrode types and lots; Electrodes should be stored in a dry place; High variations of the temperature should be prevented to eliminate the risk of condensation in the boxes.

STORAGE AND PRECAUTION


The Vac Packed electrodes should be stored in closed packs in a dry place. The storage period shouldnt be longer than 12 month.

RECOMMENDED STORAGE CONDITIONS: Temperature : 15-35 C ; Relative Humidity: as low as possible, not exceeding 70 %. Storage of boxes or cases should be on pallet or shelf, rather than on the ground. It is recommended to stock the electrodes not longer than 5 years, but no maximum storage time is given.

USAGE
Only the necessary packs needed for a welding period of about 4 hours should be taken from the stock area to the working place. Before use make sure that the pack has not lost his vacuum. Open the pack with an appropriate tool, knife or scissors. Mark the pack with date and opening time. Once the pack has been opened the electrodes have to be used straight from the pack.The electrodes taken from the opened pack should be welded within the maximum time indicated on the label, i.e. 4 hours. Make sure that during this working time the pack or the electrodes are not in contact with water, rain ect. Electrodes that remain unused in opened packs shall be discarded or re-baked according to the instructions on the label.

REDRYING
Rutile and cellulose electrodes can be used directly without re-drying. Rutile electrodes which show any sign of damage from moisture pick-up can be re-dried at a temperature of 90110C for 0.5-1 hour. Basic coated electrodes are re-dried normally at a temperature of around 350C for 1-2 hours, to achieve a hydrogen level of < 5 ml / 100 g in the weld deposit. Re-dried basic electrodes can be stored in a heated cabinet or kiln at 80-120C without further moisture pick-up. Selectarc rutile-basic coated stainless steel electrodes are produced with a coating which is highly resistant to moisture pick-up. Therefore they can be used without re-drying. However if, for some reason, the electrodes are damp, they should be re-baked for 2 h at 250-300C.

DIFFUSIBLE HYDROGEN
If the above procedure has been fully respected Selectarc Industries guarantees that the diffusible Hydrogen content of the weld deposit will meet the maximum level indicated in standard on the label, i.e. - < 5ml / 100 g weld metal for H5 - and < 10ml / 100 g weld metal for H10.
