CLASSIFICATION: E81T1-B6M per AWS A5.29, ASME SFA 5.29

Select 810-B6 is a low alloy steel electrode intended for single and multiple pass, all position welding of certain chromium-molybdenum steels where a weld deposit of 5 percent chromium and 1/2 percent molybdenum is required.

APPLICATIONS: Select 810-B6 is specially designed for welding tube, pipe and plate subjected to high temperature service, such as A213-T5 and A335-P5.

DIAMETERS: .045", .052", 1/16"

SHIELDING GAS: 75-80% Ar/balance CO2, 35-50 cfh

WELDING POSITIONS: All positions

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Smooth, stable arc transfer with low spatter emission.
  • Fast freezing slag facilitates easy removal.
  • Increased deposition rates over covered and stick electrodes.
  • Greater tolerance of mill scale and rust.
