ESAB OK 73.08 is a NiCu-alloyed LMA electrode. It deposits a weld metal with good corrosion resistance to sea-water and flue gases, and is made for the welding of weatherproof steel and for ship’s hull structural steel. The weld metal has excellent mechanical properties. It is particularly suitable for welding the shell plating of ice-breakers and other ships, which work under conditions where the protective paint coating wears off. Or for welding of weathering steels, e.g. Cor-Ten steel and ship’s hull structural steel.
