SifChrome is a new range of rutile coated stainless steel manual metal arc welding electrodes, which have been introduced to cover all common 300-series stainless steels.
With a flux coating containing titanium oxide, these electrodes provide a crisp arc strike and produce a smooth arc with little spatter resulting a aphetically pleasing weld appearance and self-releasing slag.
SifChrome electrodes are suitable in both AC and DC+ mode and run well in a variety of positions including downhand, fillet, vertical up and overhead applications.
All SifChrome electrodes are supplied in 4kg hermetically sealed cans with ring-pull opening and plastic sealing cap to protect them from atmospheric contamination once opened. The cans are packaged in robust cardboard cartons, which accommodate 3 cans in a rigid formed insert to minimise movement during transport and reduce the possibility of damage.
The SifChrome range consists of:
SifChrome 308L is designed to weld austenitic stainless steels 304 in dairy and cold storage applications and has a U.T.S Ultimate Tensile Strength >550N/mm2. This electrode is available in 2.5mm, 3.2mm and 4.0mm diameters.
SifChrome 312 contains a high level of Cr/Ni for the welding of difficult-to-weld steels such as armour plate, austenitic Mn steel, high carbon and Cr/Ni steels and has a U.T.S > 800N/mm2. It is available in 2.5mm, 3.2mm 4.0mm diameters.
SifChrome 316L is designed to weld molybdenum alloyed 18/12 and similar Cr/Ni/Mo steels producing welds with high resistance against general and intergranular corrosion and has a U.T.S > 550N/mm2. It is available in 1.5mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.2mm and 4.mm diameters
SifChrome 316L CRYO is a low grade carbon stainless steel electrode that is ideal for applications where the mechanical requirements are tough as the weld produced has a good impact toughness at low temperatures and a high resistance to cracking with a U.T.S > 550N/mm2. It is available in 2.5mm and 3.2mm diameters.
