A heavy coated, basic type, low hydrogen all-position, except vertical down, electrode, which deposits 1.25% Cr/ 0.5% Mo weld metal. The electrode is synthetic type and is intended for welding creep resisting steels of similar composition, used in power generating plant operating at temperatures upto 570°C. The welds are of X-ray quality.
