AS 461C

Submerged Arc Welding (SAW)

Agglomerated aluminate-basic type flux for welding of general structural steels


AS 461C is an agglomerated aluminate-basic type flux for welding of general structural steels, boiler and pipe steels, fine-grain structural steels and as well for surfacing. AS 461C produces a higher silicon level compared to AS 461 with medium Manganese pick-up and allows high welding speeds. AS 26, AS 35 and AS 40A wire electrodes are preferred for multilayer welding; AS 40A is also recommended for welding from both sides in one pass or when welding one-sided with single layer technique for higher level of toughness. AS 461C is suitable for twin-wire, tandem and multi-wire welding techniques. Nice bead surface and good slag detachability make AS 461C perfectly suited for fillet welds.


  • High silicon pick-up flux
  • Smooth bead surface
  • Suitable for one side welding as well
