Wet Welding Electrodes



wet welding electrodes for underwater welding on steel or stainless steel, MagnumUSA, 800-957-4344

Each electrode is lathe wrapped and wax dipped for maximum shelf life and burning reliability. Our method does not contaminate the flux. Stronger welds over time.

The approximate number of electrodes per ten pound, 4.5kg box can be found below:

1/8" 3.2mm = 100 electrodes.

5/32" 3.9mm = 80 electrodes.

3/16" 4.7mm = 60 electrodes.

We fully understand old times dip electrodes in laquer and get the job done. In today's world; things like certification matter. Thus, we spin wrap electrodes in pvc and dip the tips and stems in wax for maximum shelf life. We do NOT dip our electrodes in paint or solvents which leads to post weld embrittlement and cracking. Since the flux under our wrap is pristine, our electrodes burn underwater like they burn on land. If you are confronted with a demanding job, select our wet welding electrodes and enjoy the peace of mind in knowing you used the very best the market can provide.

Because much of the repair work is now done in wet atmospheres without enclosures, the adoption of underwater wet welding standards was critical for consistent and reliable quality assurance. The adoption of the ANSI/AWS D3.6 standard provided several benefits not the least of which was the ability of engineers to match an electrode with the scope of the fabricated structure. Four separate classes were adopted. Type A welds were compared with surface welds pertinent to enclosed or hyperbaric settings. Type B welds encompass noncritical applications where ductility and porosity are not a critical factor. Type C welds indicate welds which are not load bearing. Finally, type O welds indicate the same requirements as surface dry welds. For more information, review the AWS D3.6M-99 specification for underwater welding published by the American Welding Society dated April, 1, 1999.
