AWS A5.5 E8018-C1 | ASME SFA 5.5 E8018-C1
8018-C1 is a low alloy, low hydrogen, iron powder electrode designed to weld 2% nickel steels in the 70-80,000 psi range and where low temperature, impact properties must be good. This electrode provides a stable arc in flat and horizontal fillet welding positions, producing weld deposits with fine bead appearance, free from undercuts and with excellent mechanical properties. 8018-C1 may be used with AC or DC (reverse polarity).
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS 8018-C1 is commonly used for welding alloys subjected to low temperatures such as found In Industries involved with liquid ammonia, propane and other gases. More specific uses would include cast and wrought air-hardened steels.
