Fluxofil 14 HD - Data sheet FLUXOFIL 14 HD

Rutile tubular cored electrode for MAG-welding, with fastfreezing slag


Standards: DIN EN 758 AW S/ASME SFA-5.20 T 46 2 P C 1 H5 / T 46 2 P M 1 H5 E71T-1 H4 / E71T-1M H4

Applications and properties : The higher filling degree of FLUXOFIL 14 HD results in higher current carrying capacity and deposition rate. Welding speed is thereby essentially increased which leads to a saving of time and reduction of costs. It can be used in all positions with only one setting of welding parameters (2 4 volts, wire feed = 9m/min, wire dia. 1,2 mm). FLUXOFIL 14 HD is em ployed in manual welding, as well as in fully mechanized w elding by me ans of the orbital welding unit CITOTRACK OSG-O1 or the vertical welding set CITOTRACK VSG-O1. It is preferably used under mixed shield ing gas and is characterized by low spatter loss, good slag removal and finely rippled, pore-free welds without undercutting into the base metal.
