Underwater: Hydroweld, Broco, Nautica, Barracuda ?

During the last century several electrodes where developed for underwater welding. Although most underwater electrodes simply are modified or coated standard dry welding electrodes we have now developed a complete new electrode that is not based on a standard composition.

The usually well known electrodes as Hydroweld, Nautica, Broco etc.. are based on a SiO2, TiO2, MnO, CaO, Al2O3, FeO mixture as also used with standard dry electrodes. AquaForce LC is based on "Hydrophobic Sand" that is completely resistant to moisture therefore leaking and sucking of the electrode belongs now to the past.. The final target was of course to obtain better (stronger) welds in submerged (underwater) conditions. Taking in consideration the high cooling speed (T8/5) we have reduced the carbon content of the weld metal with 70% to obtain the ideal fusion line together with a softer and stronger weld metal.
Furthermore AquaForce offers a very soft and excellent arc stability with no spatters and can be used in all positions. > view datasheet
