RD-260 is an exceptionally versatile rutile medium cellulose flux coated mild steel electrode for all positional welding except vertical down.This electrode welds with a smooth stable arc on both AC and DC.Spatter is minimal.Weld seams are smooth, Bright and evenly rippled. Initial arc strike and re-strike are instant.
This group of electrodes is designed for general fabricational welding of wrought sections of C-Mn steel up to 15mm in thickness.
The wrought steels may be in the form of sheet, plate, pipe, rolled, drawn or extruded products.
Applications include: plate for ship hull construction, site and workshop welding of pipes and pipeline, construction of pedestrian walkways and bridges, vehicle and boiler construction as well as a great variety of general construction and workshop applications.
