LINCOLN WEDING ELECTRODE EASYARC ID 7018 – LOW HYDROGEN
- AWS A5.1: E7018
- ASME SFA-5.1
EASYARC™ 7018 is a multi-purpose electrode with excellent operator appeal. EASYARC™ 7018 is excellent for welding of mild and low alloy steel, which is used for bridges,buildings, ship building, pressure vessels, etc.
EASYARC™ 7018 can also be used for the construction or repair of earth moving, farm and mining equipment.
EASYARC™ 7018 is an iron powder low-hydrogen type electrode for all-position welding of mild and low alloy steels.
The easily controlled arc of EASYARC™ 7018 makes it easy to use on DC & AC polarity. EASYARC™ 7018 offers excellent mechanical properties, high efficiency and high impact values at -30°C. It is also easy to strike and restrike.
- High deposition rates
- Easy slag removal
- Excellent crack resistance and X-ray performance
- Flat or slightly convex beads have distinct ripples with little spatter
- Manufactured under a quality system certified to ISO 9001 requirements
- Available in PERMAPACKTM (1) (Vacuum Sealed)
All controlled hydrogen electrodes will perform optimally when they are dry.
Unopened Lincoln PERMAPACK’s provide excellent protection against moisture pick-up in good storage conditions.
Should re-drying be necessary, remove electrodes from the packet / container and spread thinly and evenly on racks in a ventilated oven.
For electrodes that have had a short or mild exposure to the atmosphere then re-drying at 572°F(300°C) for 1 hour will be sufficient.
For electrodes that have been exposed to longer or more aggressive conditions or for critical work re-drying at 572-662°F (300-350°C) for 1-2 hours is recommended.
After re-drying electrodes should be stored in a hot box.
