Flux Cored Electrode is suited for low-temperature welding.January 8, 2007 -
Formulated for welding certain HSLA steels, Select 85-Ni3 gas-shielded wire produces weld deposit that contains 3.5% nickel to promote low-temperature toughness. Arc transfer is globular, and bead profile is convex. Low alloy steel electrode, available in .045 and 1/16 in. dia, is designed to weld 3% nickel steels that require postweld stress relief and min 80,000 psi tensile strength. Basic slag system produces minimal diffusible hydrogen levels.

Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced a low alloy steel, flux cored electrode formulated for welding certain HSLA steels. This new gas-shielded wire, Select 85-Ni3, produces a weld deposit that contains about 3.5% nickel to enhance low temperature toughness.
Select 85-Ni3 features a basic slag system which provides excellent low temperature strength and low diffusible hydrogen levels. Due to the nature of a basic slag, the arc transfer is globular and the bead profile is convex. This electrode is available in .045" and 1/16" diameters.
Select 85-Ni3 is designed to weld 3% nickel steels that require a postweld stress relief, a minimum of 80,000 psi tensile strength and exceptional low temperature performance. Typical applications for welding with Select 85-Ni3 include shipbuilding and tanks used for gas storage.
