welders’ favourite
since 1938
Elga has been renowned for being the most demanding welders’
choice ever since the very beginning. Starting as a family company
in Gothenburg, Sweden, we have
grown into a major supplier of
consumables for the toughest and most challenging enduse welding areas. Today, we support welders across
the globe with reliable consumables, equipment and
know-how. As part of the global ITW group, we have the
expertise and resources to continuously improve welding quality as well as productivity.
Welcome to our world!
75 years
of innovation
It all began with the development and manufacture of electric
and gas welding equipment for Sweden’s engineering industry.
Since then, Elga has continuously developed effective products for applications characterised by high demands on both
the welder and the filler material.
Innovation has been the main thread
through the company’s history. One
example is the development of cored
wire in the mid 1980s, an area in which
Elga took the lead from the start and
still remains a driving force. The latest
development stage is the outstanding Cromacore LDX flux cored wire for
LDX steel.
MADE FOR THE ROUGHEST
ENVIRONMENTS
From the very beginning, we have
supplied the most demanding industries with forefront welding technology.
That is why you will find welds from
Elga consumables in constructions
exposed to extreme conditions. Close
collaboration with our customers has
always been an integral part of the
development process. This has given
us deep insights into the professional
welders’ world for a great variety of
end-use areas such as heavy vehicles
and equipment, shipbuilding and offshore, steel structures and energy, paper and pulp, process piping, etc.
Steel structures on- and offshore, heavy
equipment, power plants and process
piping are typical end-use areas.

elga tigpac 500 / 1000
A TigPac for
every need
TIGPAC 500
Minimize the risk of mixing steel
alloy grades with our colour coded 500 mm TIG rods. They come
in the convenient TigPac 500
package with transparent sleeves
of four in four kg boxes.
500 mm length ensures good rod
manipulation and welding access.
By using Elga’s colour coded TIG
rods you will live up to the demands of colour coding in the offshore standard NORSOK M-601,
Welding and inspection of piping.
TIGPAC 1000
The new TigPac 1000 is a practical, convenient tube for 1000 mm
TIG rods. It contains your rods for
welding of aluminium, stainless
and carbon steel.
elga PROpac
The robot’s
best friend
When shifting to ProPac in your
robotised or mechanised welding
downtime for spool changes can
be reduced by up to 90 % (250 kg
ProPac compared to 15 kg standard spool). Time you can convert
into increased arc time factor and
improved productivity. ProPac
also extends the wire feed unit’s
lifetime. The force needed to pull
out the wire from ProPac is considerably less than rotating a
standard spool, thus causing
less strain on the wire feed
unit and drive motor.
Significantly reduced spool
changes also improve the
quality thanks to fewer rejects
associated
with
welding process interruptions. The physical
properties of the coiled
wire in ProPac means that it
always exits the welding torch
straight, providing excellent,
reliable seam tracking. Unlike
spools, the wire in ProPac is always fully protected from moisture, dirt, dust, etc., which can
cause welding problems.
And last but not least, ProPac is
fully recyclable and can be folded
for easy disposal and recycling.
elga DRYpac
Dry electrodes
in any weather
With DryPac you can rest assured
that the electrodes are dry when
you need them. They are vacuum
packed in factory dry conditions
and come in a moisture controlled
paper tray. The package is resealable with a new kind of tape that
provides extra protection for electrodes left in an opened DryPac.
The outer pack is made of corrugated cardboard and the opening
on top is easy to fold back, which
contributes to easy storage and
handling. All DryPac packaging
components are of course fully
recyclable.

Description:
P 43 is a medium-coated rutile electrode intended for welding light to medium sections in mild steel.
The electrode operates with a very smooth arc and is suitable for all positions except vertical down. It
is easy to strike and re-strike and produces a self-detaching slag leaving a finely rippled bead
appearance. With its excellent bead surface and smooth transition with the base material P 43 is
ideal for butt and fillet welding of sheet metal work.

Description:
P 45S is a multi-purpose rutile-cellulosic coated electrode suitable for a wide application range in mild
steel. The electrode is fully positional, including vertical down and welds with a crisp, steady arc to
produce a smooth bead surface with good slag detachability. It is relatively insensitive to rust, dirt and
surface coatings. Together with its ability to bridge gaps, the general versatility of P 45S makes it
ideal for both shop and site fabrication.

Description:
Maxeta 5 is an acid-rutile iron powder electrode with 160% recovery, intended for the welding of
general construction steels in the horizontal and horizontal-vertical positions. The electrode is
designed to give a fast burn-off rate enabling the user to make extended run lengths and thereby
produce small fillet welds at high deposition rates.
It is particularly recommended for plate where the surface has been treated with primer or
contaminated by rust, mill scale, paint etc. Both the weld appearance and transition with the base
material are exceptionally smooth and consistent, making Maxeta 5 a suitable choice when demands
on fatigue resistance of the joint are high.

Description:
Maxeta 11 is a rutile-coated iron powder electrode with 190% recovery designed for high productivity
welding in heavier section mild steel. The electrode is particularly suitable for high speed fillet welding
in the downhand and horizontal-vertical positions as well as downhand butt welds. Excellent mitre
profile fillets are produced having a smooth transition with the base material. The electrode runs with
a smooth stable arc leaving a finely rippled bead surface with self-detaching slag and minimum
spatter. It operates equally well on primer-treated material. Maxeta 11 is specially designed to give
very low fume emission.

Description:
P 48P is a basic-coated, low hydrogen, carbon manganese electrode specially designed for
pipewelding. The all-positional AC/DC electrode is exceptionally easy to use. P 48P has an extremely
stable arc which enables it to be manipulated in the most difficult welding positions without any risk of
arc extinction due to freezing. Root beads are even and slightly convex, providing a smooth blend-in
with the base material. Operating characteristics are not sensitive to variations in the root gap or edge
misalignment. Fill and capping passes fuse flush with the joint edges, minimising the risk of edge
defects when using either the stringer bead or weaving technique. The flat-to slightly convex bead
profile results in the need for only a bare minimum of grinding and therefore considerable reduction in
the associated problems of dust and noise pollution. P 48P combines the special operability needs of
the pipe welder with the general requirement for improved productivity.

Description:
Maxeta 20 is a basic-rutile low hydrogen iron powder electrode with 150% recovery intended for
welding of heavier section construction steels. The electrode is particularly suitable for welding of
standing fillets enabling the user to make extended run lengths and thereby achieve small fillet welds
at high deposition rates. Excellent mitre profile fillets are produced having a smooth transition with the
base material. The electrode runs with a stable arc leaving a finely rippled bead surface with
self-detaching slag and minimum spatter. It operates equally well on primer-treated material without
porosity or fusion line problems along the top edge.

Description:
Cromarod B347 is a niobium stabilised, basic flux coated electrode used
for welding the Nb or Ti stabilised 18% Cr/ 10% Ni austenitic stainless
steel grades 347 and 321. It is also suitable for the unstabilised grades
304 and 304L. Cromarod B347 is primarily intended for use where resistance to intergranular
corrosion is required. For welding the controlled carbon material grades 321H and 347H, used for
structural applications at temperatures above 400 °C, Cromarod 308H is recommended because of
its superior creep strength.
Cromarod B347 has an easy slag removal even in narrow joint preparations, reducing post-weld
cleaning time. The basic coating results in higher resistance to porosity due to improved gas shield,
making the electrode highly suitable for on site welding. Basic coated stainless electrodes produces
weld metal with higher touhgness at lower temperatures compared to rutile coated electrodes due to
less weld metal oxygen. The basic coating results in a lower weld metal Si content making B347 less
sensitive to hot cracking caused by Nb additions, compared to rutile types. Furthermore this permits a
lower weld metal ferrite content compared to rutile types.

Description:
Cromarod 316LV is a rutile flux coated electrode designed specially for welding thin section acid
resisting 316L austenitic stainless steels in the vertical down position. The special composition and
very thin coating gives the electrode exceptionally good operating characteristics when vertical down
welding of single pass butt, fillet and lap joints. Weld beads are neat and smooth with a slightly
concave profile to fillets. The vertical down technique is characterised by high welding speeds and
low heat input, giving enhanced productivity combined with minimum distortion. Cromarod 316LV is
ideal for joining stainless steel cladding and linings.

Description:
Cromarod LDX is a rutile coated "Lean Duplex" type electrode for welding stainless steels such as
LDX 2101, ASTM S32101. The weld metal is low in Mo, making it the preferred choice for
applications where the corrosive media requires this for corrosion resistance, eg. alkaline corrosive
environments. Cromarod LDX could also be used to weld other duplex stainless steels such as ASTM
S32304 and S32003 but it has to be verified that corrosion resistance of the weld metal is sufficent for
the specified application.

corrosion cracking. A heat input range of 0.5-2.5 KJ/mm is recommended to maintain a favourable
phase balance. Applications include offshore platform pipework, pipelines transporting chloride
bearing products or sour gas and process vessels for chloride environments. Where higher fracture
toughness at -46 °C is required, use Cromarod Duplex B.

Description:
Cromarod 385 is a rutile flux coated electrode designed for welding the fully austenitic stainless steels
of the 20%Cr / 25%Ni / 4.5%Mo / Cu type, used for their very high resistance to corrosion in severe,
non-oxidising environments e.g. sulphuric acid. The low carbon, high alloy content of Cromarod 385
weld metal gives excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion and stress corrosion cracking,
combined with superior resistance to crevice and pitting corrosion. Use no preheat, avoid high
heat-input and maintain an interpass temperature of maximum 150 °C.
For very severe corrosion environments a special variant of this electrode, with a Mo content of 6%, is
available to order.

Description:
Elgacore MXA 55T is an all-positional metal cored wire producing a 1.7% Ni alloyed weld metal with
very good fracture toughness down to –60°C. It is specially designed for single-sided welding, but is
equally suitable for multi-pass applications in thick plate, utilising its excellent deep penetration
characteristics in the spray transfer current range. Fillet welds have a mitre profile and root runs
against ceramic backing leave a smooth bead without risk of slag entrapment. The wire runs with a
very stable, spatter-free arc, even under dip transfer conditions at welding currents as low as 50 A.
Elgacore MXA 55T is highly suitable for offshore construction. Elgacore MXA 55T is CTOD tested

Cromacore 2507 is a rutile flux cored wire which deposits a 25%Cr/10%Ni/4%Mo/0.25%N super
duplex type weld metal with a ferrite level of approximately FN 50. It is designed for welding similar
composition steels e.g. SAF 2507, Uranus 52N, Zeron 100, which offer even higher strength and
corrosion resistance levels than the ordinary duplex grades. Cromacore 2507 may also be used for
welding standard duplex steels when higher corrosion resistance in the weld metal is required. A heat
input range of 0.5-2.5 KJ/mm is recommended to maintain a favourable phase balance in the weld
metal and avoid deleterious precipitation effects in the plate. The weld metal has excellent fracture
toughness at temperatures down to –40°C.

Applications include offshore platform pipework for seawater cooling systems and firefighting water,
as well as pumps, valves and risers.

Description:
Elgamatic 181CR is a copper coated wire for use with the MIG/MAG process, which deposits a 0.5%
Mo type weld metal. It is primarily intended for welding similar composition steels, used where creep
rupture strength and ductility at service temperatures up to 550°C are required, e.g. DIN 15 Mo3, BS
3059 Grade 243 and ASTM A335 Grade P1. The Mo content confers some resistance to hydrogen
attack in chemical process plant applications. Elgamatic 181CR is also suitable for ordinary C-Mn
steels when higher tensile strength weld metal is required. Preheat and interpass temperature of

Corrosion resistance
General corrosion
Thanks to its high Cr content (> 23%) the
Cromamig LDX allows welds with a general
corrosion resistance at least equal to the one of
the plates on which it is used for welding, in
particular the 4062 grade with 22% Cr and the
4162 grade with 21% Cr.
Pitting corrosion
For the 6%FeCl3 medium (ASTM G48A
standardised test), the critical pitting temperature
of the above-described welded joint is determined,
by calculation, to 16°C, i.e. 10°C above the level
measured for a base metal of the 304L/1.4307
type and at the same level as that of a base metal
of the 1.4362 type.
Intergranular corrosion
As all the low C Duplex grades, in the as-solidified
condition, the
Cromamig LDX does not exhibit, on duplex welded
joint, any intergranular precipitation likely to cause
intergranular corrosion phenomena.

Description:
Cromamig 2507 deposits a 25%Cr/10%Ni/4%Mo/0.25% N super duplex type weld metal with a ferrite
level of approximately FN 55. It is designed for welding similar composition steels e.g. SAF 2507,
Uranus 52N, Zeron 100, which offer even higher strength and corrosion resistance levels than the
ordinary duplex grades. Cromamig 2507 may also be used for welding standard duplex steels when
higher corrosion resistance in the weld metal is required. A heat input range of 0.4-1.5 KJ/mm is
recommended to maintain a favourable phase balance in the weld metal and avoid deleterious
precipitation effects in the plate. Applications include offshore platform pipework for seawater cooling
systems and firefighting water, as well as pumps, valves and risers. The weld metal has excellent
fracture toughness at temperatures down to –40°C.

Description:
Cromatig 2507 deposits a 25%Cr/10%Ni/4%Mo/0.25% N super duplex type weld metal with a ferrite
level of approximately FN 55. It is designed for welding similar composition steels e.g. SAF 2507,
Uranus 52N, Zeron 100, which offer even higher strength and corrosion resistance levels than the
ordinary duplex grades. Cromatig 2507 may also be used for welding standard duplex steels when
higher corrosion resistance in the weld metal is required. A heat input range of 0.4-1.5 KJ/mm is
recommended to maintain a favourable phase balance in the weld metal and avoid deleterious
precipitation effects in the plate. Applications include offshore platform pipework for seawater cooling
systems and firefighting water, as well as pumps, valves and risers. The weld metal has excellent
fracture toughness at temperatures down to –40°C.

Classification
EN ISO 14171-A S A AR 1 76 AC H5
Flux for submerged arc welding
Description:
Elgaflux 211R is an agglomerated acid flux of the aluminate-rutile type. It is primarily designed for high
speed fillet welding with the single or twin-arc process where it exhibits an exceptional self-detaching
slag and smooth, bright bead appearance. It is also suitable for butt welding thin and medium thick
sections, providing excellent slag detachment even in narrow joints and root passes. Elgaflux 211R is
Si and Mn alloying and intended for use in combination with wires Elgasaw 101, 102 and 102Si, for
welding mild and medium tensile steels where fracture toughness at low temperatures is not required.
It is relatively insensitive to porosity caused by rust and primers and can be welded on AC and DC
using single and multi-wire processes, with up to1100 A on a single wire. Elgaflux 211R is suitable for
general fabrication, two-run spiral pipe manufacture, box beams, fin-tube walls and shipbuilding.

Elgaflux 400B
Classification
EN ISO 14174-A S A FB 1 55 AC H5
Flux for submerged arc welding
Description:
Elgaflux 400B is a high basicity agglomerated, fluoride-basic flux designed for welding Cr-Mo creep
resistant steels. The very low impurity levels in the flux produce an extremely clean weld metal,
particularly with respect to P pick-up, and enable high impact strength properties to be achieved, even
after step cooling heat treatment.
Elgaflux 400B can be used on both AC and DC, but AC is recommended for optimum impact properties. Elgaflux 400B exhibits very good operability characteristics, including good slag detachability in
narrow gap joints. Typical fabrication sectors are pressure vessels, power generation and petrochemical industries.

Cromaflux 380
Flux for submerged arc welding
Classification
EN ISO 14174-A S F CS 2 DC H5
Description
Cromaflux 380 is a fused, calcium-silicate flux intended for use with Ni-base wires where it provides
excellent slag detachability, even in restricted joints, and clean, bright deposit finish with low bead
profile and smooth tie-in. Cromaflux 380 is also suitable for use in combination with austenitic and
duplex stainless steel wires for high speed fillet welding, using the single or twin-arc process, or where
welding at the lower current range is required, e.g. thinner material. Being non-hygroscopic (fused), it
can further be used to weld low alloy-high strength steels where very low hydrogen levels are critical.
Cromaflux 380 is for use on DC only and is suitable for butt welding 9% Ni steels in combination with
Cromasaw 625, butt welding with alloy 59 and alloy C276 wires, cladding with Ni-base wires, high
productivity fillet welding with austenitic and duplex stainless steel wires and power generation fin-tube
walls in P91 steel.

Classification:
Description:
Elga Gouging Electrode is a copper coated carbon-graphite electrode used for air carbon-arc cutting
and gouging. The arc is used to progressively melt the base material which is subsequently blown
away by high velocity jets of compressed air. Because the process is physical rather than dependent
on oxidation it can be used on most metals. The process leaves a clean surface free from slag and
further surface preparation is not usually necessary. Applications include weld joint preparation,
cutting and perforating and removal of weld and material defects.

Ceramic backing
Elga Ceramic Backing is used to provide root pass
support when welding from one side only and is
an extremely effective way to rationalise welding
procedures and reduce production costs. Welding
of root passes is normally the most critical part of
the weld and hence the most costly. By using Elga
ceramic backing, you can reduce production costs
substantially.
Benefits with Elga Ceramic Backing
Reduced production costs:
• Eliminates the need for back-gouging, grinding
and rewelding operations on the reverse side.
• Significant savings in costs associated with
turning large and heavy plates or structures
in order to weld the second side in the flat
position.
• Increased productivity when welding root runs
in position 1G/PA, 2G/PC and 3G/PF.
• Simpler joint preparation and reduced set-up
time because tolerances for the root gap are
greater.
• Use of higher welding currents, which means
higher deposition rates and increased productivity.
Typical examples of ceramic backing applications.
Useful tips when using Elga Ceramic Backing
Quality improvements:
• Use relatively low current/welding speed.
For Elgacore < 200A and < 200 mm/min, for
Cromacore < 160A.
• Smooth, even root bead with slightly convex
profile and excellent blend-in with base
material.
• Dirt, mill scale, coatings and other contamination to be removed from the joint faces before
welding.
• The ceramic material does not emit fumes and
contains no moisture. Ideal for low-hydrogen
applications.
• When welding in enclosed spaces the working environment is not polluted by fumes
from arc-air gouging, grinding and rewelding
operations.
• End craters should be fully ground out.
• Maximum 1 m root run at a time, before next
pass applied.

Storage and handling of welding consumables
of moisture in the coating, even after the final drying operation during manufacture. This moisture
decomposes in the arc during welding to give
hydrogen, (H), and consequential risk for hydrogen
induced cracking.
The moisture is bound in the crystalline structure
of some of the minerals in the coating and requires
a relatively high temperature to remove it. Basiccoated electrodes are designed to be dried at high
temperatures, resulting in a low coating moisture
level, and are often referred to as “low hydrogen
electrodes”.
Storage and handling of welding consumables
consist of the following parts:
• Hydrogen induced cracking
• Coated electrodes
• Flux Cored Wires
• Submerged arc welding fluxes
Hydrogen induced cracking
Hydrogen in welded joints in ferritic materials can
give rise to hydrogen induced cracking, also known
as cold cracking and delayed cracking
The major factors which influence the risk of this
type of cracking are chemical composition of the
steel (Carbon Equivalent factor CE), cooling rate
and hydrogen content of the weld metal.
The most common sources of hydrogen are:
• Moisture in electrode coatings or SAW flux
• Drawing lubricants on cored wires
• Moisture in the atmosphere or shielding gas
• Condensation, rust, oil, paint or primer in the
weld joint area
Coated electrodes can be divided into:
1) Non-alloy C-Mn, rutile or acid-rutile coated
electrodes , with H>15 ml/100g weld metal.
2) Non-alloy C-Mn and low alloy, basic-coated
electrodes, with H<10 or <5 ml/100g weld metal.
3) High alloy austenitic stainless steel electrodes,
rutile or basic coated, where hydrogen diffusion
does not occur because hydrogen is soluble in
the austenitic atomic structure, even at room
temperature.
Moisture, lubricant etc. decomposes in the arc
during welding to give hydrogen,(H), which is
readily dissolved in the weld pool. On cooling this
(H) tries to escape via diffusion because it is less
soluble in the solid weld metal compared to the
molten weld pool. Any (H) that remains trapped
in the joint can cause hydrogen induced cracking.
Cracks generally form in the coarse-grained, HAZ
of the base material but for very high strength weld
metals cracks can also arise in the weld metal itself.
By following the recommended storage and handling procedures for welding consumables, moisture
levels can be minimised, along with the associated
hydrogen induced cracking risk.
Of the above listed groups, it is only types 1 and 2
which can give rise to hydrogen induced cracking.
For steel grades with a yield strength > 355MPa
the use of type 2 electrodes is recommended.
Type 3 electrodes are also dried at high temperature,
but this is to minimise the risk of porosity, also
caused by moisture in the coating.
Unfortunately, electrode coatings are hygroscopic,
i.e. they pick up moisture from the surrounding
atmosphere if freely exposed to it. Suitable coating
formulation design can minimise this effect but not
eliminate it. For this reason it is necessary to ensure
that electrodes are not able to absorb moisture (by
correct choice of packaging, storage and handling)
or, alternatively, to re-dry them before use.
Storage and handling of coated electrodes
Coated electrodes always contain a certain amount
250
Electrodes in packaging type A must be stored
with the plastic wrapping unbroken in a climatically
controlled environment according to the above. If
low hydrogen weld metal is specified then electrodes
in packaging type A must be re-dried before use,
following the instructions in the data sheet or on
the label.
Types of packaging
Elga’s non-alloy and low alloy electrodes are supplied in two different types of packaging, depending
on the required level of resistance to moisture pickup from the atmosphere in the unopened condition.
A) Cardboard box with shrink plastic wrapping.
This is the most common packaging for electrode
type 1 and type 2 non-alloy C-Mn electrodes.
B) Hermetically sealed steel can or aluminiumlaminated plastic foil vacuum pack (DryPac). This
is the most common packaging for type 3 stainless
electrodes and type 2 low alloy electrodes.
Electrodes in packaging type B are completely
moisture diffusion-proof and do not therefore require any special storage instructions. Electrodes
taken directly from newly opened packaging of this
type do not require re-drying before use.
To avoid condensation forming on electrodes that
have been stored at a lower temperature than ambient, unopened packaging should be allowed to
reach ambient temperature before being opened,
independent of packaging type.
Of these two packaging forms, it is only for type B
that Elga guarantees low moisture content at point
of opening. Products delivered in packaging type A
are guaranteed to have been tested to comply with
low moisture content following final baking in the
factory, but no guarantee can be given that they have
not subsequently picked up moisture during delivery
to, or storage at, the customer. Electrodes in type A
packaging must therefore be re-dried before use if
low hydrogen weld metal is specified.
Type 2 and 3 electrodes from opened packaging can be stored in a storage cabinet held at
105-150 °C without the risk of moisture pick-up.
It is important here that these electrodes are not
mixed together with type 1 electrodes in the same
cabinet, because the latter can transfer moisture to
the former.
Points to consider when handling and
storing unopened packaging
Handling in the workshop
Elga’s type 2 and 3 electrodes are manufactured
according to the MR-design concept (Moisture Resistant) which ensures low initial moisture content
together with a slow moisture pick-up rate.
Storage
In general, moisture pick-up of electrodes depends
on the temperature and humidity of the surrounding
atmosphere, which can be measured as the relative
humidity (RH) at a given temperature.
However, moisture pick-up occurs relatively slowly
with storage under the following conditions:
5-15 °C
15-25 °C
>25 °C
For electrodes in type B packaging the following
exposure times are valid for conditions of 26.7 °C
and 80% RH, in order to guarantee low hydrogen
level in the weld metal or sufficiently low moisture
content in the coating (stainless electrodes).
<60% RH
<50% RH
<40% RH

12 h
1. Cored wires shall be stored in their original,
undamaged packaging under properly maintained
climatic conditions of 10-30°C and relative humidity
as low as possible, maximum 80%.
2. Packaging shall not be placed directly on the floor,
but on a wooden pallet or equivalent, at a distance
of at least 10 cm from the ground and outside wall.
3. Transportation to and from the storage place
shall be carried out in covered vehicles and direct
exposure to rain and snow avoided.
Storage:
4h
For type 2 electrodes in type A packaging the following recommendation is given:
During the working period, keep the electrodes in
heated portable canisters at a minimum temperature
of 70 °C. After the work period, store the remaining
electrodes in a heated storage cabinet. This recommendation is also valid for electrodes in opened
package type B, if the electrodes are not likely to be
consumed within the times specified above.
Storage of cored wires outside the original
packaging.
When the wire has been taken out of the original
packaging, it can be stored in normal heated premises, (workshop etc.), for up to 5 days.
Re-drying
Rutile electrodes, type 1, which show any signs of
damage from moisture pick-up (poor arc stability,
heavy spatter, poor slag detachability) can be redried at around 90 °C for 1 h in order to restore
welding characteristics.
Basic coated C-Mn and low alloy electrodes (type 2)
are normally re-dried at a temperature of around 350
°C for 1-2 h, in order to reach a hydrogen content
of the level 4-10ml/100g weld metal as given in
the data sheet. The guiding rule is to follow the redrying instructions in the data sheet or on the label.
Re-drying should be limited to 5 cycles.
To obtain an extremely low hydrogen level, i.e.
<4ml/100g, it is possible in certain cases to redry at higher temperatures than 350 °C. However,
under these circumstances Elga must be contacted
first for detailed instructions, otherwise there is a
risk that the coating can be damaged. Normally
this will reduce the maximum allowed number of
re-drying cycles.
5-15ºC <60% RH
15-25ºC <50% RH
> 25ºC <40% RH
Handling
• If welding is conducted in an environment that
is subject to snow, rain, marine conditions or dust,
covered wire feed units should be used.
• During outdoor usage, or when used in unheated
workshops or premises, the wire should be moved
to a dry, heated storage area when not in use for a
period of 8 hours or more.
• If the wire is to be put back in storage, the spool
shall be protected with its plastic bag, or equivalent.
Scrapping
• If traces of rust/corrosion are found on the wire
surface, this indicates that the wire has not been
stored or handled correctly. A wire with rust traces
should be scrapped.
If there is any suspicion that the wire has not been
stored correctly, Elga recommends that the wire be
SCRAPPED.
252
For critical applications, shopfloor storage should
be in heated flux hoppers maintained at 120-150oC.
Flux in opened bags, not used during an 8 h period,
should be placed in a storage cabinet or heated flux
hopper, at 120-150oC.
Storage and handling of submerged arc welding fluxes
Elgaflux and Cromaflux fluxes are supplied as standard in 25kg moisture resistant plastic bags, 25kg
hermetically sealed aluminium-coated plastic bags,
25kg plastic lined moisture resistant paper bags and
600kg coated fabric BigPac bags. All fluxes have a
guaranteed low as-manufactured moisture content
that can be maintained by observing the following
recommendations for storage and handling.
Recycling
Unused flux recovered from the welding area must
be cleaned from mill scale, slag, metal particles
and other impurities by use of a suitable fine-mesh
sieve, before being recycled.
Addition of new flux to that being recycled should
be done regularly, in the ratio 1: 3
Transport
Flux is normally supplied on plastic shrink wrapped pallets with a net weight of 1000kg or 1200kg.
BigPac bags are supplied individually on shrink
wrapped pallets. Transportation should be carried
out in covered vehicles and direct exposure to rain
and snow avoided.
Redrying
The need for redrying only arises under two
circumstances:
1. If the flux has picked up moisture due to unfavourable storage and handling, and needs to be restored
to its original condition.
Main storage
Agglomerated and fused fluxes should be stored in
their original, undamaged packaging under properly
maintained climatic conditions as follows :
• Temperature 2. For critical applications demanding guaranteed
very low weld metal hydrogen levels, redrying of
the flux is recommended.
Redrying should be carried out in an appropriate
oven with free air circulation or purpose made
drier, as follows:
15-35oC
• Relative humidity As low as possible, maximum 70%
Stored under these conditions the lifetime for agglomerated fluxes is 3 years and that for fused fluxes 5
years. Stock control should encompass the first-in,
first-out principle.
Agglomerated fluxes 300-350oC for 2 h
Fused fluxes
150-250oC for 2 h
The most important factor here is for the complete
flux bed to reach the given temperature. Redried flux
that is not for immediate use should be stored in a
storage cabinet or heated flux hopper, maintained
at 120-150oC.
Storage and handling in the workshop
When handled and stored according to conditions
described above, flux can normally be used direct
from the bag. For non-critical applications, flux may
be stored on the shopfloor in unheated flux hoppers,
provided these are closed units and protect the flux
from open contact with the prevailing atmosphere.
253
Welding of high yield strength structural steels
The following provides a short summary of important points that should be taken into consideration when welding high strength steels.
Practical guidelines
• Always investigate if the specification or
component design will permit use of an
under-matching weld metal. Many structures
can be fabricated so that the welded joints are
positioned where stress levels are relatively
low, permitting undermatching welds.
The term “high strength” refers to steels with a
minimum yield strength of around 460 MPa
This group of structural steels generally obtains its
strength level by rapid cooling and is delivered in the
quenched and tempered condition, according to EN
10025-6. This manufacturing process enables high
strength to be achieved with a relatively low alloy
content and thereby low Carbon Equivalent (CE),
which in turn gives good weldability. This thermal
history also produces a microstructure that gives a
combination of high strength and good toughness.
• Only use low hydrogen welding consumables.
• Ensure that safe routines are in place for storage and handling of welding consumables in
order to minimize risk of exposure to moisture.
Coated electrodes packed in a cardboard box
with shrink plastic wrapping must always be
re-dried before use.
• Tack welds and root passes require special
attention, and the needs for preheating should
be carefully observed.
In order to produce weld metal with matching mechanical properties, however, a significantly higher
alloying level than that of the steel is required,
since control of microstructure via the quenching
and tempering operation is not available to the weld
deposit. This results in the weld also having a higher
CE, with consequential increased risk for hydrogen
induced cracking.
As a result, the weld metal is often the controlling
factor when calculating the CE, together with the
critical minimum cooling time Δt8-5. The cooling
time is determined by the preheat, heat input, joint
design and plate thickness.
• Quenched and tempered steels normally have
an increased CE with increased plate thickness
and welding parameters may have to be adjusted accordingly if different joint thicknesses
arise in the same structure.
• Base welding parameter calculations on the
actual chemical composition of plate and do
not rely on nominal values.
• Cooling rates can differ significantly depending on whether two-dimensional or threedimensional cooling is involved, which in
turn is determined by joint design and plate
thickness. For this reason calculate welding
parameter settings according to EN 1011-2.
• Plate manufacturers often offer software to
facilitate the above calculations.
254
Guidelines for the usage of cored wires
In order to obtain optimal welding characteristics
(arc stability, penetration, bead appearance, slag
removal) as well as optimal mechanical properties
in the weld metal, it is very important to use cored
wires in the correct manner. The essential welding
technique parameters that affect the final result are
covered in the following recommendations.
• Risk of insufficient gas shield
• Increased bead width
• Decreased bead thickness
Recommended wire stickout ElgacoreCromacore
1,2 mm
1,2 mm
Welding current 100-200A
200-300A
Wire stickout
The wire stickout (electrode extension) is the distance between the contact tip and the work piece
surface.. The stickout can vary between 15 to 25
mm but should be kept as constant as possible.
Each millimeter change of wire stickout affects the
welding current by 3-5 A. An increased wire stickout, at constant wire feed rate, gives lower current.
A too long wire stickout can result in a cold weld
pool and insufficient gas shield, both of which must
be avoided.
15-20 mm
20-25 mm
Parameter box
In order to ensure correct usage of Elga cored wires,
it is recommended to work within the applicable
parameter box for the product and application. The
parameter box gives the recommended amperage
and voltage level to be used in order to obtain the
correct penetration, to minimize spatter, and to
achieve the specified mechanical properties of the
weld metal.
An increased wire stickout gives:
• Colder weld pool
• Risk of insufficient gas shield
• Reduced penetration
• Less spatter in the gas nozzle
• Decreased bead width
• Increased bead thickness (more convex)
Both Elgacore and Cromacore products have a
wide parameter box, which makes it easy to set
the correct welding parameters. The parameter box
can be found on each product data sheet, under
“Recommended parameter range”
A decreased wire stickout gives:
• Risk of overheating the contact tip
• More spatter

Backhand welding
Torch angle and manipulation
• The weld torch is pointed towards the weld
bead.
• Backhand welding gives better penetration and
normally produces a slightly more convex weld
bead. The risk for lack of penetration and slag
inclusions is reduced using backhand welding.
• Backhand welding is recommended for use
with rutile flux cored wires when maximum
penetration is required.
There are two main techniques of torch orientation when welding cored wires, i.e. backhand, and
forehand welding.
Forehand welding
• The weld torch is pointed away from the weld
bead.
• Forehand welding gives a smooth weld bead
appearance, but reduces penetration.
• Mostly used for standing fillets and is recommended for welding primed plates.(PB fillet
welds)
Recommended torch angle
For both forehand and backhand welding the gun
angle should be 10-20 degrees from the vertical.
Too large an angle can result in poor penetration,
unstable arc, porosity or poor impact toughness.

Mechanical testing of weld metal
Mechanical properties given in this catalogue refer
to typical values for test specimens taken from
all-weld metal material. They represent the average
obtained from a large number of tests, and for
established products they are based on the last five
years results from annual approvals check tests.
deformation and the yield strength is indicated with
the symbol Re and measured in units MPa.
Other weld metals e.g. stainless steel, do not show
the same well marked transition boundary and in
such cases the yield strength is defined as the point
when a specified permanent deformation remains
in the test specimen after the load is removed. The
catalogue values refer to a residual deformation of
0.2% and are designated Rp 0.2%.
Test plate preparation and specimen location for
all-weld metal testing is shown in the figure below.
Two types of test specimens are prepared – cylindrical test pieces for tensile testing and square Charpy
V-Notch test pieces for impact energy testing.
Tensile Strength
This is the maximum stress which the material under
test can be subjected to before fracture occurs and
is designated Rm.
The tensile test is used to determine:
• Tensile Strength
• Yield Strength
• Elongation
Elongation
This is a measurement of the weld metal´s ability to
deform before fracture occurs. It is designated A5
and measured as a percentage of the original test
specimen length, which is normally five times the
specimen diameter.
The impact test is used to determine:
• Fracture toughness properties
Impact test
specimen
Impact energy (fracture toughness)
Impact testing is used to determine weld metal
toughness at a given temperature, under impact
loading conditions, and is a measurement of the
material´s resistance to brittle fracture. Impact
energy is determined using a V-notch test specimen according to the Charpy-V method and is
measured in the unit joule (J). Fracture toughness
values are temperature dependant and decrease
with decreasing temperature. In general a weld
metal is “safe” against brittle fracture down to the
temperature which gives a minimum impact energy
value of 47 Joule.
20mm
Tensile test
specimen
Yield Strength
The yield strength is the applied stress (load) at
which the material under test starts to yield plastically, producing a permanent deformation after the
load is removed.
Mild and carbon-manganese weld metals have a
clear transition point between elastic and plastic

Deposition data
• Productivity: The weight of weld metal deposited per hour arc time
Covered electrodes
• Electrode efficiency or metal recovery: The
weight of weld metal deposited in relation to
the weight of core wire consumed.
The higher the welding current that can be used on
any job, the higher is the productivity. All deposition data given in this catalogue have been obtained
using the maximum recommended current for the
electrode. Use of a larger diameter electrode results
in increased productivity as does using electrodes
with iron powder in the coating.
An electrode without any iron powder in the coating
gives a recovery factor of about 90%. The loss occurs as spatter onto the plate and oxidation losses
into the slag covering.
With iron powder added to the coating the metal
recovery can be increased. Electrodes with a recovery factor above about 130% are normally termed
”high recovery”. A common high recovery figure
is around 180%, but there are electrodes giving
recoveries of up to 250%.
e.g.P 43Ø 3.25 : H = 1.2 kg/h
P 43Ø 5.0 : H = 2.7 kg/h
Maxeta 11Ø 3,25 : H = 2.5 kg/h
Maxeta 11 Ø 5.0 : H = 5.3 kg/h
Cored Wires
The deposition coefficient for a cored wire varies
between 0.85-0.95, depending on the different types
i.e. deposition efficiency is between 85-95%. The
exact efficiency figure for each cored wire is indicated on the respective product page in the catalogue,
together with a deposition productivity diagram.
Elga’s mild steel high recovery electrodes are called
MAXETA.
e.g. Maxeta 10 135%
Maxeta 11 190%
Maxeta 21 170%
Maxeta 22 240%
• Deposition Coefficient N: The weight of weld
metal deposited in relation to the weight of
electrode consumed.
Solid Wires
The deposition coefficient for a solid wire is about
0.96.
For covered electrodes N is normally around 0.7 i.e.
if you weld 1 kg of electrodes you end up with 0.7
kg of weld metal. N is useful when calculating the
electrode consumption.
e.g. If 5 kg of weld metal is required to complete a
given job, then the actual electrode consumption
would be 5 ÷ 0.7 = 7.1 kg

C oating type and usability characteristics
For use with DC+only. Usually basic coating. All positions.
-16
For use with DC+and AC. Rutile coating. All positions.
-17
As for -16, but higher sili ca content in coating gives following:
• More of a spray arc and finer rippled bead surface in H-V fillets. • Slower freezing slag permits
improved handling with a drag technique. • Mitre to slight concave H-V fillets • When making vertical-up fillets the slower freezing slag requires slight weave to produce flat profile.
-25
Same coating and type as for -15 but with a mild steel core wire. Flat and horizontal positions only.
