Description
  • N-8018-C3 is a 1% nickel, low hydrogen, iron powder electrode used for welding high strength steels in the 70-80,000 PSI tensile strength range
  • Offers high deposition efficiency, producing excellent quality of weld weld deposits with good impact properties even at temperatures as low as -60°C
  • Used for fillet welds on high strength quenched and tempered steels such as ASTM A514 and A517

The information contained or otherwise referenced herein is presented only as “typical” without guarantee or warranty, and Industrial Welding Corporation expressly disclaims any liability incurred from any reliance thereon. Typical data and test results for mechanical properties, deposit, or electrode composition and other properties were obtained from a weld produced and tested according to prescribed standards and should not be assumed to be the expected results in a particular application or weldment. Actual results will vary depending on many factors, including, but not limited to, weld procedure, plate chemistry and temperature, weldment design, and fabrication methods. Users are cautioned to confirm by qualification testing, or other appropriate means, the suitability of any welding consumable and procedure before use in the intended application.

  • Cor-ten, Mayari R, LT75, N-A-Z High Tensile, V-55, Yoloy HS, military, and commercial applications
  • Dry the electrodes at 350-400C for about one hour before use
  • Store the electrodes at 100-150C after drying to keep away from moisture
  • Adopt back step method or strike the arc on a small steel plate to prevent blowholes at the arc starting
  • Keep the arc as short as possible
  • Pre-heat at 100-150C
