Lincoln Electric Introduces a New Submerged Arc Flux with Ultra-Low Diffusible Hydrogen and Excellent Mechanical Properties for Offshore Welding Applications
Cleveland – Lincoln Electric
introduces Lincolnweld® 842-H™
, a submerged arc flux designed to meet the specific welding requirements for the offshore construction industry. Great for typical offshore welding joints with narrow groove angles and heavy wall thickness
, Lincolnweld 842-H has excellent slag detachability and superior bead profile and smoothness.
- Ultra-Low Diffusible Hydrogen – Less than 3 mL/100g of deposited weld metal in DC and AC polarities
- Consistent Impact Toughness – Impact toughness capable of exceeding CVN values of 160 J (118 ft•lbs) at -60°C (-76°F) in the body and cap pass for consistent CTOD toughness
- Outstanding Bead Profile – Smooth bead profile with low entry angles especially desirable for cap pass welding in fatigue sensitive applications
- Excellent AC and DC Operation – High current capacity for single- or multiple-arc configurations
- High Operator Appeal – Excellent slag detachment and wash-out
- Robust Design – Allows for consistent deposit composition in a central recovery system
This neutral welding flux lowers the risk for delayed cracking and is capable of exceeding impact toughness requirements at -60°C (-76°F) and Crack Tip Open Displacement toughness at -10°C (14°F).
