What is AWS E7018 Welding Electrode and What are its Benefits
AWS E7018 Welding Electrode is a type of arc welding electrode that is used for low hydrogen welding. It is designed to provide superior performance in all positions and can be used on a variety of metals, including carbon steel, low alloy steel, and stainless steel. The electrode has a high deposition rate and produces an excellent weld bead profile with minimal spatter. It also offers excellent mechanical properties such as high tensile strength, ductility, and impact toughness. The AWS E7018 Welding Electrode provides superior arc stability and good slag detachability which makes it ideal for use in all positions. Additionally, it has a low hydrogen content which helps to reduce the risk of hydrogen embrittlement in the welded joint.
