"Bringing the Welding World Together"

Excelloy 51 AC/DC ±:

For all low carbon steels the ultimate all position, all purpose electrodes

The Excelloy 51 was designed to operate on any AC or DC welding power supply regardless of open circuit value. This electrode is extremely easy to use, performs in all positions, has a self-releasing slag and produces weld deposits with superb bead appearance. Arc action is quiet, smooth and spatter free. Instantaneous strike and re-strike makes this electrode ideal for tacking and repair work.


Applications

For repair and fabrication of all gauges and thick nesses of low carbon steel sheets, plates, angle iron, channel and beams. It is ideal for filling holes, building up worn surfaces and correcting machining errors. Due to its low amperage requirements thin sections can be welded without danger of burn through.


Procedure

Clean and prepare weld zone in accordance with standard welding practice. Use DC straight polarity when welding sheet metal, DC reverse polarity when welding thicker sections. Smooth, evenly rippled weld beads are produced using short arc length or a drag technique. AC operation is smooth and spatter free.
