AA B500

Category 
type 
Basic seamless micro alloyed flux cored welding wire
applications 
Pressure vessels, steam boilers, riser pipes, low temperature requirements, high demanding and stressed constructions that needs post weld heat treatment.
Properties 

High basic seamless fluxcored welding wire for extreme offshore requirements at sub zero temperatures down to -80 degrees Celsius. Excelent welding properties and very low hydrogen content due to the seamless production proces.
