CLASSIFICATION: EC1 per AWS A5.17, ASME SFA 5.17.

To be used for submerged arc welding only, Select EH12K-S is a metal cored, carbon steel electrode intended for the welding of carbon and certain low alloy steels. This wire’s high level of manganese and silicon allow for improved performance over rust and mill scale.


APPLICATIONS: Select EH12K-S is designed for the welding of structural carbon steels such as A36, A285, A515 and A516. It may also be utilized with neutral or active fluxes or substituted anywhere a solid wire (EH12K) is employed.


DIAMETERS: 3/32", 1/8 ", 5/32 "

WELDING POSITIONS: Flat and Horizontal

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Cored wire design delivers higher deposition rates than solid wire when run at the same current level.
  • Better control of bead penetration than solid wire.
  • Reduces burn-through on root passes or poorly fit up joints.
