The Astro 200 Low Alloy Miscellaneous Steels 200 are the finest universal Welding Electrode Low amperage, low spatter electrode for welding low alloy, miscellaneous and mild steels. Excels in out of position work, especially vertically down.
Astro 200 is an electrode for both the beginner and experienced welder. The special coating makes this electrode unique, in that it is almost impossible to ‘stick’ the electrode to the work; yet strong, smooth welds are produced with very little spatter. This is an electrode the experienced welder can use when he requires a high speed rod that will produce X-ray quality welds and keeps heat distortion to a minimum.
Strike an arc and hold a short arc or touch the electrode to base metal. Stringer beads are used since the weld metal wets and flows out, eliminating the need for weaving. Oscillation of the electrode in the direction of travel when welding out of position will permit the molten metal to ‘Set up’ so the welder will have better control of the deposited bead. Slag is easily removed after each pass with light chipping and brushing.
Astro 200 is excellent for welding galvanised or rusty steels
Building structures and fabrication of mild steel plates.
