Select 95-K2 Close Window
 Print Sheet


CLASSIFICATION: E90T5-K2C per AWS A5.29, ASME SFA 5.29

The outstanding mechanical properties of Select 95-K2, particularly the low temperature CVN values, make this an excellent choice for welding steels requiring a minimum of 90,000 psi tensile strength and good subzero CVN toughness. This electrode is designed for single and multiple pass welding of horizontal fillets and flat position weldments for specific low alloy steels.

APPLICATIONS: Select 95-K2 is well suited for steels such as HY-80, HY-100, ASTM A710 and A514. Typical applications would be the welding of aircraft carriers, submarines, oil exploration equipment, mobile cranes and earthmoving machinery.
