  • Stick Elecrodes

    Approximately 25% to 30% of products welded worldwide are manufactured using arc welding with stick electrodes. Steel and pipeline construction cannot do without manual welding with stick electrodes.  

    Our stick electrodes help to keep one of the oldest processes for joining metals up to date and compatible with the specific requirements. We offer the most comprehensive portfolio available on the welding market, with special offers for unalloyed, low-alloy or stainless steel, pipelines, and much more. This includes a complete range that meets the requirements of welding processes at particularly low temperatures. In the area of wear protection, we offer suitable products for many applications.

  • Welding wires

    Active gases are used for MAG welding in the form of carbon dioxide or a gas mixture. MAG welding in a gas mixture is the dominant practice as it has a lower tendency to spatter and a higher deposition rate than welding with 100% carbon dioxide. Inert gases such as argon, helium, and their mixtures are used in MIG welding. These shielding gases do not react with either the base materials or the welding consumables. 

    However, there are also applications with self-shielded flux-cored wires, in which case the wire itself provides protection against the influence of the atmosphere, making the use of inert gas unnecessary. 

    In arc spraying, a process for metallic coating, compressed air or inert gas is used to atomize the molten material and distribute it on the surface. 

    voestalpine Böhler Welding offers a wide range of coordinated solid wires and cored wires for manual and automated welding processes as well as for arc spraying, covering all major grades.

    The extensive voestalpine Böhler Welding product range includes:

    • solid wires for all alloy groups of unalloyed, pipeline steels, stainless steels, nickel-based alloys, copper alloys, and WAAM;
    • gas-shielded flux-cored wires for every alloy group of unalloyed, low-alloy, stainless, and pipeline steels for joint welding;
    • gas-shielded flux-cored wires, e.g. for wear protection applications;
    • self-protecting cored wires with specific solutions for low-alloy and pipeline steels.
    • The portfolio also includes cored wires for arc spraying, e.g. for surface protection.

    We offer cored wires in seamless and folded production technologies. Our seamless design of the “diamondspark” wires enables a low diffusible hydrogen content as well as no moisture absorption during storage and processing, resulting in a low risk of hydrogen-induced cracking and pore formation.

  • Cladding

    Submerged arc welding strip cladding and, in particular, electroslag strip cladding (ESSC) are welding processes that offer the highest deposition rate with minimal dilution and no change to the chemical analysis. Both SOUDOTAPE strips and RECORD® welding flux are benchmarks for the cladding of demanding materials

    • to achieve surface properties such as the corrosion resistance of pressure vessels in the petrochemical, oil and gas industries, and in power plant construction as well as
    • the wear resistance of rollers in mineral processing, mining, and the steel industry.
  • TIG rods

    The TIG welding process is a high-quality welding process that utilizes inert gas. It is used for demanding applications in fields such as: 

    • pipeline construction; 
    • food industry; 
    • pressure vessels; 
    • aviation; 
    • and many more. 

    For TIG joint welding and repair welding, we manufacture a comprehensive range of TIG rods for many steel grades and non-ferrous alloys. 

    For optimal welding results, important parameters of the tungsten electrode must be taken into account and coordinated. The success of TIG welding can therefore be significantly improved by using coordinated welding machines with intelligent functions, such as the Böhler Welding EasyArc. 

  • voestalpine Böhler Welding offers a wide range of welding consumables. These include materials for submerged arc welding, which makes use of a wire electrode and welding flux. Our range includes over 120 wire-powder combinations for steels, stainless steels, and nickel-based alloys.

    These products are used worldwide in demanding industrial segments, such as:

    • energy generation; 
    • processing and chemical industry; 
    • upstream and downstream offshore production; 
    • pipe mills; 
    • nuclear industry; 
    • wind tower manufacturing; and 
    • construction industry. 
  • Modern welding technology also shows its strength in additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing with metals. 

    voestalpine Böhler Welding has developed high-quality welding wires for this special application, helping to set the stage for wire arc additive manufacturing. Our wires with a high deposition rate of up to 5 kg per hour significantly simplify and speed up production processes. In addition to materials based on commercially available welding wires made of unalloyed, medium-alloy, and high-alloy steels, the product range also includes nickel- and cobalt-based alloys.
