AquaForce LC

type 
CEWELD AquaForce LC is a underwater electrode with extreme low C-content.
applications 
Welding standard ship steel grades A, B & D in submerged condition according the requirements of AWS D3.6M-99. Developed for joining under water objects, plate doubling in ship repair, sealing sheet, pile profiles etc. All applications underwater for carbon steels up to 420 MPa to -20 °C. Tested up to a water depth of 20m
Properties 

CEWELD AquaForce LC is the first Basic electrode that was developed with "Hydrophobic sand" to offer maximum moisture resistance. CEWELD AquaForce LC is characterized by its superior ability to produce flat (non-concave) welds with deeper penetration in all positions including PB, PC, PD, PE and PG position. The special (Armcore) ultra low carbon core wire of this electrode reduces the hardness from 195 HV to 165 HV hardness in the pure weld metal caused by the high cooling rate (T8-5) when welding under water. CEWELD AquaForce LC has a unique Basic coating reduce the Oxygen content in the weldmetal to obtain better ductility than can be achieved with standard wet welding rutile electrodes.
