CLASSIFICATIONS: ENiCrFe3T1-1/4 per AWS A5.34

SelectAlloy 182-AP is a gas-shielded, flux cored, nickel –based electrode designed to weld in all positions. It has a nominal weld metal composition of 15% chromium, 7% iron, 6% manganese, 2% niobium, balance nickel. It is primarily used for welding Ni-Cr-Fe (such as Alloys 600, 601) and Ni-Fe-Cr (such as Alloy 800) base material, for welding the clad side of joints in steel clad with nickel-chromium-iron alloys and for dissimilar welding of carbon and low alloy steels to austenitic stainless steels or nickel-based alloys.

APPLICATIONS: SelectAlloy 182-AP combines corrosion resistance, high temperature strength and oxidation resistance. This premium electrode is engineered for welding in harsh environments such as desalination plants, petrochemical facilities, power generation plants and in temperature critical conditions such as furnace equipment and piping.
