MAXETA™ 16 Covered (Stick) Electrodes (SMAW) Unalloyed

MAXETA™ 16 is a rutile-coated iron powder electrode with 160% recovery
intended for horizontal and fillet welding of heavier section construction
steels. The electrode has been specially designed to achieve the highest
possible productivity when depositing fillet welds with a throat thickness in the 3.0-4.0 mm range. Fillet welds can be made in primer-treated material without porosity or fusion problems along the top edge. As with the other high recovery electrodes in Elga’s programme, MAXETA™ 16 has excellent slag
detachability and very low fume emission.
