ELITE PERFORMANCE

CarbonElite arc gouging carbon electrodes are made of a proprietary composition to deliver high efficiency metal removal. The copper coated carbon’s offer excellent arc stability and generate less heat for a controlled melt off rate. Available in pointed, jointed, flat and hollow electrode types for use in numerous semi-automatic or automatic applications.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Removing defective welds
  • Removing surface welds for re-surfacing
  • Preparing joints for welding
  • Backgouging base material to allow for a full penetration weld deposit
