Lincoln Electric Introduces a New Submerged Arc Flux for Offshore Welding Applications

Cleveland – Lincoln Electric introduces Lincolnweld® 842-H™ a submerged arc flux designed to meet the specific welding requirements for the offshore construction industry. Great for typical offshore welding joints with narrow groove angles and heavy wall thickness, Lincolnweld 842-H has excellent slag detachability and superior bead profile and smoothness.

Key Features:

Ultra-Low Diffusible Hydrogen – less than 3 mL/100g of deposited weld metal in DC and AC polarities Produces sound welds with excellent slag removal and bead appearance

Consistent Impact Toughness – impact toughness capable of exceeding CVN values of 160 J (118 ft•lbs) at -60°C (-76°F) in the body and cap pass for consistent CTOD toughnessNickel overlays applications

Outstanding Bead Profile – smooth bead profile with low entry angles especially desirable for cap pass welding in fatigue sensitive applications

Excellent AC and DC Operation – high current capacity for single- or multiple-arc configurations

High Operator Appeal – excellent slag detachment and wash-out

Robust Design – allows for consistent deposit composition in a central recovery system

 Lincolnweld® 842-H™














This neutral welding flux lowers the risk for delayed cracking and is capable of exceeding impact toughness requirements at -60°C (-76°F) and Crack Tip Open Displacement toughness at -10°C (14°F).
