P 52T Covered (Stick) Electrodes (SMAW) Unalloyed

P 52T is a basic-coated low hydrogen electrode especially designed for tack
welding mild and higher strength steels up to 500 MPa. It produces a
flat-to-concave weld deposit exhibiting high ductility which minimises the risk
of cracking in highly restrained joints. The electrode is easy to use in the
vertical -down position, combined with excellent restriking and slag removal
characteristics. P 52T has special slag properties that make it highly suitable
for tack welding joints prior to using FCAW.
