OK Flux 10.83

The following items have been added to your list


OK Flux 10.83 is an agglomerated, low-basicity flux for submerged arc welding. Highest welding speeds can be obtained with wire diameters of 3.0 mm or less with this flux. Further attributes include smooth weld beads and excellent slag detachability. It is used for single pass butt, overlap and fillet welds at high travel speeds and works equally well on DC and AC current, primarily used with single or twin-arc wire systems. High welding speeds are applied e.g. in long weld runs for general construction, beam fabrication, membrane wall panel tube to fin welding and in the automotive industry for the production of car and truck wheels. In all these applications OK Flux 10.83 is found, when no impact toughness is required.
