SAW Flux

PWL 8101

The production of PWL8101 is based on agglomerated flux produced by imported technical know-how and equipment of Swiss Olicon welding industry company (former product name is OP-122).

PWL8101 is a soda-fluorine type agglomerated flux, with grain size around 2.0-0.28mm. It can be operated with AC and DC, the wire shall be connected to positive pole when applying DC. It has steady are, nice weld formation, and easy in slag removing, as well with perfect deposit metal welding technological characteristics.

Applications with applicable wires (EM12K, EH14) mainly used in the welding of low carbon steel and some low alloy steel structure and the SAW welding of boiler pressure vesels, ships, bridges, oil transportation lines, etc.
