A rutile flux cored all position wire designed for welding mild and carbon steels, especially when good impact toughness is required at sub zero temperatures. Ideal for single and multi-pass applications, it delivers outstanding welding performance and produces high quality X-ray clear weld deposit with a bead contour that is flat to slightly convex.
It performs exceptionally well over rust, mill scale and some primers with no pre-cleaning of the steel necessary.
Formula XL-525 has outstanding mechanical properties that resemble those of E7018 MMAW (SMAW) electrodes, plus high operator appeal with low fume levels, low spatter and easy slag removal.
Recommended for ship building, storage vessels, off-shore structures, earth moving equipment and pipe welding.
