Datasheet

BÖHLER FOX EV 70 Pipe

Basic covered electrode for high strength steels. It is excellent suited for positional welding of filler and cover passes of pipes, tubes and plates on D.C. positive polarity. It is user friendly and provides a good gap bridging ability together with easy slag removal to ensure minimum grinding. Good impact properties down to -40 °C, low hydrogen content (HD < 5 ml/100 g).

BÖHLER FOX BVD 85

Basic electrodes for vertical-down welds of large diameter pipelines and for structural work. Suitable for filler and cover pass welding in pipeline construction. Deposit is extremely crack resistant, and features high toughness and a very low hydrogen content. Deposition rate is 80- 100% higher than for vertical up welding. The weld deposit of BÖHLER FOX BVD 85 shows an ideal combination between high strength and cryogenic toughness down to –50°C (–58°F). Special design and development work has enabled this electrode to provide exceptional striking characteristics and the avoidance of start porosity. Due to this and the good welding characteristics this special basic electrode offers easy handling even under field conditions. Böhler Fox BVD 85 can be used in sour gas applications (HIC-Test acc. to NACE TM-02-84). Test values for SSC-test are available too.
