7018 Low Hydrogen Mild Steel
Low hydrogen electrodes are perfectly suited to a wide variety of welding applications such as those where the base metals have a tendency to crack, where thick sections need to be welded, or where the alloy content is higher than that of mild steel.
Low hydrogen electrodes can be used on steels with poor weldability or steels where cracking can be problem, or for out-of-position welds on heavy plate.
