Mild Steel, Low Hydrogen


TENACITO 38R is a low-hydrogen thick coated basic electrode that deposits weld metal containing C-1.2%Mn-0.9%Ni. Electrode producing tough and crack-free welded joints. Weld deposit is of extremely high metallurgical purity and very low hydrogen content. Owing to its double covering (up to 3,2 mm), the electrode features a stable arc, making it well suited for positional welding. CTOD-tested for offshore applications. TENACITO 38R electrode features a stable and concentrated arc making it well-suited for positional welding with excellent mechanical properties in both the as welded and stress relieved conditions


  • Weld metal is of very low hydrogen content
  • Excellent mechanical properties

Welding Positions

  • All position, except vertical down
