GEEFLUX 505 X EM 14K

SPECIFICATION : AWS/SFA 5.17M : F48AZEM14K/F48AOEM14K

CHARACTERISTICS :

Agglomerated rutile alumina type flux recommended for single and multilayer welding of structural steels. The flux is resistant to porosity and slag detachability are excellent. The consumptions of flux is small and usually is about 1.1kg for 1.0kg of wire.

TYPICAL APPLICATION :

Structural steels

IS : 2062 Grade B or equivalent

H-beams, ships , pipes, general fabrication, Storage tanks, etc

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Dry the flux at 3000C –3500C for minimum 60mts before use.
  • Pay attention to welding voltage. Excess voltage causes. deterioration of joint properties.
  • Add fresh flux periodically to prevent weld defects and bead appearance
