The electrode is highly resistant to stress cracking corrosion even under high temperatures. The filler metal works well even at cryogenic temperatures. The electrode is suitable for adverse conditions that contain hydrogen sulfide, sulfides, carbon dioxide, and free sulfur. The material requires hardening in temperatures of around 9000 C. The alloy has excellent weldability, and it is easily fabricated. The electrode is used in welding grades 718, 750, and X-750 stainless steel. The rod has high strength retention at high and cryogenic temperatures. The alloy has easy slag removability and forms a smooth bead with the base metal.
