Item Details

  • Hobart® E8018-C3 H4 Hoballoy® 8018C3 14" Low Alloy Steel Electrode with 5/32" Dia uses AC or DCEP (Direct Current Electrode Positive) type current and is recommended for use in commercial and heavy equipment applications. It features resistance to moisture reabsorption that aids in eliminating starting porosity. Low hydrogen, less than 4 ml/100 g is resistant to hydrogen-induced cracking while low smoke level offers welder safety and comfort. Quick and easy slag removal helps in reducing clean-up time where as good arc characteristics provides stable and easy to control arc. The coating is specially formulated to resist conditions of high heat and humidity. 8018C3 will provide notch toughness of 20 ft lb at -40 deg F. It is an outstanding electrode that is designed for 80000 tensile strength applications and also 1% nickel applications having excellent puddle control with good wetting action and tie in. If exposed to atmosphere for long period it needs to be reconditioned for one hr at 600 deg F. After opening store in holding oven at 220 - 350 deg F until used. Electrode comes in a hermetically sealed container of 50 lb. Definitely a preferred electrode with high operator appeal.
