This is hydrochloric acid corrosion resistant electrode at all temperatures and concentrations. It also resists corrosion from other organic and inorganic acids. The filler metal can also withstand salt-bearing environments. The alloy is resistant to pitting and stress cracking corrosion when exposed to acidic conditions. It has high contents of nickel and molybdenum which enhance the quality of the rod. The alloy does not allow the formation of carbide precipitates around the welding zones. The electrode has a high shear strength which leads to high resistance of metal removal. Constant exposure of the wire to temperatures above 6000 C reduces ductility of the electrode.
