Item Details

  • ESAB® AtomArc® E8018-C3 8018 Low Alloy Steel Electrode with 3/32" Dia is used mainly to weld high tensile steels in the 70 - 80 ksi tensile strength range, usually where notch toughness at temperatures as low as -40 deg C is required. The improved flux coating offers an extra degree of reliability for electrodes exposed to high humidity environments and resists moisture pick-up in opened containers. All AtomArc® electrodes have moisture-resistant coatings. Electrode weighing 50 lb can deposit 1% Ni weld metal and comes in a hermetically sealed container.


  • Moisture resistant coatings are incorporated in all AtomArc® electrodes
  • The flux coatings are manufactured to effectively resist moisture pick up in opened containers
  • The improved coating provides an extra degree of reliability, especially for electrodes exposed to high humidity environments
