AA R500

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

CEWELD AA R500 is a seamless rutile cored wire that offers excellent modelling ability, therefore excelently suitable for position welding at high currents. The weld deposit shows reliable impact properties down to -60°C. Particularly suitable for MAG orbital welding and for welding on ceramics in all positions. CTOD tested at -20°C. Extremely low diffusible hydrogen content (on average below 3ml/100g).
