Griduct 9P2, E 9018-G
AWS/SFA 5.5: E 9018G
A basic type hydrogen controlled iron powder electrode specially designed for welding of hot filler and capping passes of high strength pipe butt joints in vertical position. Deposited weld metal is tough, crack free and is of radiographic quality. The low hydrogen nature of the flux coating makes the electrode especially suited for joining crack – sensitive high strength pipes.
