E7018 - Weldporn® – WELD EVERY DAMN DAY
E7018/E7018-1 is a low-hydrogen iron powder type electrode that produces high quality X-ray welds. It can be used in all positions on AC or DC reverse polarity welding current. E7018/E7018-1 is recommended for welding medium grade carbon steels where no preheat is used, and on cold rolled steels normally exhibiting excessive porosity when welded with conventional electrodes. Typical Applications • Low-alloy structurals • Low, medium, and high-carbon steels • Offshore rigs and power plants • Steel structures • Tack welds for tubular wire applications AWS Specification AWS A5.1/A5.1M:2004 AWS Classification E7018/E7018-1 Welding Current AC - DC Typical Wire Chemistry C 0.15 Mn 1.60 Si 0.75 S 0.035 P 0.035 Cr 0.20 Ni 0.30 Mo 0.30 V 0.08 Combined Limit for Mn+Ni+Cr+Mo+V 1.75 Typical Mechanical Properties (As Welded) Yield Strength, ksi 58 Tensile Strength, ksi 70 Elongation%, min 22 Welding Positions F,V,OH,H Available Diameters 3/32", 1/8", 5/32", 3/16" & 1/4" Operating Range in Amps 3/32" 70 - 110 1/8" 105 - 155 5/32" 130 - 200 3/16" 200 - 275 1/4 " 315 - 400
