Tips for successful welding with stick electrodes are as diverse as the electrodes themselves. Different coating concepts and different alloying of the electrodes and their application require an individual handling. In addition to the correct alloy, the selection of the right stick electrode is often based on higher cost-effectiveness and easy handling (rutile coated types) or on high mechanical-technological requirements (basic coated types). The choice of the right alloy stick electrode is easiest when joining materials of the same alloy grade, but it may become difficult when connecting completely different alloys.
Each welding task can be very specific. Therefore application engineers of voestalpine Böhler Welding are available to assist you in accomplishing your welding, cladding and brazing challenges.
