WIPWeld 10 Mo (AWS E7010-A1)

A molybdenum-alloyed steel cellulosic electrode for filling layers in pipe joints. The forceful arc is sufficient to expel any remaining slag residue adherent to the previous layer. Deposits regularly rippled seams in the vertical down position. Produces little slag and exhibits relatively easy deslagging.

Applications and Directions

For welding mild steel types, St. 35, ST. 35.4, St. 45, St.45.4, and steels of API standard 5 LX, X 42, X 46, and X 52

Use DC reverse polarity (DC+) current. Maintain a short to medium arc. Hold perpendicular to the work surface and slightly incline in the direction of travel, keeping size of the molten pool small. Do not allow coating to touch pool. Clean each bead thoroughly before applying the next. Vertical welding can be done starting from the top or the bottom as the work requires. In overhead welding, best results are obtained by the multiple bead method.
