AA R500

Category 
type 
Seamless micro alloyed rutile cored wire with slag for M21
applications 
Offshore, Shipbuilding, pressure vessels, orbital pipe work.
Properties 

Very good modeling ability, therefore excellent all-position welding with higher currents. Use up to -60 °C (- 76 °F) .. Particularly suitable for MAG-orbital welding and for weldings on ceramics in all positions. Low spatter loss, and remarkable easy slag removal.  CTOD tested at -20°C.
