J506Fe18 is a low-hydrogen-potassium-iron-powder coated carbon steel electrode. The iron powder in the coating increases the deposited rate up to 180%. It has very good usability that enables it to have stable arc, low-spatter, removal of slag is easy and performs all-position welding. The deposited metal has good mechanical properties that offer very good low temperature toughness.
It is applied in flat and flat fillet welding in structures made of carbon steel and low alloy steel such as 16Mn, 09Mn2Si and A, B, D, E steels used in shipbuilding.
