6 Nb min 8%, C max1,1%; up to 20% of the amount of Nb can be replaced by Ta.
7 The all-weld metal is in most cases fully austenitic and therefore can be susceptible to microfissuring and solidification cracks. The
occurance of cracking is reduced by increasing the weld metal manganese level and because of this, the manganese range is
extended for a number of grades.
8 Electrodes under this symbol are usually selected for specific properties and May not be directly interchangeable.

Basic-coated electrode for welding root passes and filling layers in all positions. The very
good weldability and excellent X-ray quality of this electrode has led to its wide use in the
ship-building, boiler and pressure vessel industry, also for welding of storage tanks, etc. The
electrode has been specifically designed for all position welding with specific emphasis on
pipe welding. In particular the 2.50 mm diameter is ideally suited for root pass welding. The
fairly wide-spreading type of arc is most helpful in avoiding slag tracks and undercut.

CELLULOSIC ELECTRODES FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF OIL AND GAS PIPE-LINES
Modern techniques employed in the construction of oil and gas pipe-lines involves, ever more often, the use of steels that only
contain small amounts of alloys but have elevated mechanical characteristics which, with better quality, means that thickness of
the steel is less.
As well as the normal X52 steels, the X60, X65 and X70 types are, by now, commonly used, and plans to use X75 and X80 steels are
already on the drawing board.
ETC has developed a range of tested electrode that can satisfy the needs of any kind of welding application with existing steels,
produced by these new, modern techniques and currently used in the construction of pipe-lines.
ETC has already studied and developed, together with the some of the world's largest pipe-lines manufacturers, new types of
electrodes for these steels, introducing the low hydrogen, 120% efficiency, ETC PH27 P electrode onto the market, for welding oil
and gas pipe-lines.

I
ELETTRODI CELLULOSICI PER LA COSTRUZIONE DI OLEODOTTI E METANODOTTI
La tecnica moderna di costruzione degli oleodotti e gasdotti si orienta sempre pi rapidamente verso l'utilizzazione di acciai
debolmente legati ad elevate caratteristiche meccaniche che, a migliore qualit, uniscono il vantaggio di poter impiegare spessori
pi sottili.
Oltre agli acciai normali X52, i tipi X60, X65, ed X70 sono ormai comunemente usati e si st gi progettando con acciai X75 ed X80.
Per poter seguire questi nuovi orientamenti moderni la ETC ha messo a punto una serie di collaudati elettrodi che possono
soddisfare le esigenze di saldatura di qualsiasi tipo di acciaio attualmente impiegato nella costruzione di "pipeline".
L'ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l. ha gi studiato e messo a punto in accordo con i grossi costruttori mondiali di "pipeline" i nuovi tipi
di elettrodi per questi acciai introducendo il tipo ETC PH 27P come elettrodo basico per la saldatura di oleodotti e metanodotti.

D
ZELLULOSE-ELEKTRODEN FR DAS SCHWEIEN BEIM BAU VON L- UND GAS-PIPE-LINES
Die moderne Bautechnik bei l- und Gas-Pipes-lines orientiert sich immer mehr nach leicht legiertem Stahl mit hohen
mechanischen Eigenschaften, das durch verbesserte Qualitt das Verschweien von immer dnneren Stahlstrken erlaubt.
Auer dem herkmmlichen Stahl X52, sind die Typen X60, X65 und X70 bereits im Einsatz und es wird der Einsatz von Stahl X75 und
X80 geplant.
Um mit dieser neuen Tendenz Schritt halten zu knnen, hat die ETC eine Reihe von erprobten Elektroden entworfen, die den
Erfordernissen beim Schweien aller Stahltypen fr den Bau von Pipe-lines gerecht wird.
Die ETC Elettrotermochimica Srl hat in Absprache mit den groen Weltunternehmen des Pipe-line-Baues neue Typen von
Elektroden fr diesen Stahltyp geplant und ausgearbeitet und mit der Elektrode ETC PH 27P, eine basische Elektrode fr das
Verschweien von l- und Gas-Pipe-lines, die Produktenreihe erweitert.

ELECTRODOS CELULSICOS PARA LA CONSTRUCCIN DE OLEODUCTOS Y GASODUCTOS
La moderna tcnica de construccin de los oleoductos y gasoductos se orienta cada vez ms rpidamente hacia la utilizacin de
aceros dbilmente aleados y de elevadas caractersticas mecnicas que, mejoran la calidad, lo cual significa la ventaja de poder
utilizar espesores ms finos.
Ms all de los aceros normales X52, X60, X65 y X70, que son los ms habitualmente utilizados, se estn ya desarrollando los
aceros tipo X75 y X80.
ETC ha desarrollado una gama de electrodos que satisfacen las necesidades de soldadura de cualquier tipo de acero que en la
actualidad se viene empleando en este tipo de construcciones pipeline.
ETC Elettrotermochimica Srl ha estudiado y puesto a punto junto con los principales constructores del mundo de pipeline los

Low hydrogen electrode designed primarily for the vertical-down welding of circumferential
pipe butt joint. The potential risk of hydrogen associated defects is minimised particularly in
relation to higher strength line pipe. In addition the low hydrogen weld metal can result in
reduced preheat levels in comparison with cellulosic electrodes. The low hydrogen weld
metal makes this electrode ideally suited for hot tapping or sleeving applications.

Elettrodo basico per la saldatura di pipe-line. Il basso contenuto di idrogeno garantisce ottime
caratteristiche meccaniche in modo particolare buoni valori di resilienza a -40C.
Particolarmente adatto per la saldatura di tubazioni in acciaio X60 - X70 ed oltre. Ottima
qualit radiografica.

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING CREEP RESISTING STEELS (CR-MO)
The creep phenomenon in constructions subject to high temperatures is well known to everybody. Continuous loading even when
the values are below the yield point of steel can cause, at temperatures between 200C and 600C, permanent deformations called
creeping.
Chrome and molibdenum prevent creeping and, at the same time, increase the oxidation temperature of the steel.
For the execution of certain structures at various temperatures, a vast range of steel alloys with various percentages of chrome
and molibdium have been studied and developed. For each of these types of steels a specific electrode has been developed which
deposits weld metal with a similar chemical composition and which has the same creeping resistance and the same oxidation
temperature.
Recommendations for welding ETC PH KV electrodes
The ETC PH KV series of electrodes are made with a low hydrogen type of coating. The well konwn rules relating to welding of
low hydrogen electrodes should be followed, it means, short arcs, reduced advance speed, a fairly closed run. Both creep
resistant steels and the relative electrodes, thanks to the chrome and molibdenum content, can be hardened even further.
Particular attention must be paid to the hydrogen content of the deposited metal when very hard steel is used. The ETC PH
electrodes in the KV series are supplied with a very well dried coations and therefore it is necessary to store them in a dry place.
The easy by which the electrode can be welded depends on the alloy content in the electrode coating and increases as the alloy
percentage increases. In fact, a skilled welder can normally determine differences in the ease of welding with the PH type
electrodes in the KV series which depends on the amount of alloy contained in the electrode.
Heat treatment after welding
With reference to heat treatment after welding, it is advisable to follow the steel manufacturer's instructions.
The data indicated in the programme relating to the heat treatment after welding must, therefore, be considered as being purely
indicative.
It is advisable that the heat treatment of steel should be carried out immediately after welding.
The interpass temperature should be, where possible, the same until the weld is put into the annealing furnace.
ETC PH electrodes with a low carbon content
Welding Cr-Mo steel alloys is difficult because of their brittleness. Is is well known, in fact, that after welding, the structure is
subiected to heat treatment which basically consists of stress relieving in order to improve the toughness of the weld, a
toughness that can be checked by means of a resilience test.
In practice it has heen found that under condition of great stress, electrodes made with small amount of Cr-Mo in the alloy can
give rise to flaws, even during the welding process and, in particular, during in the first pass.
ETC has developed the PH KV series of electrodes, designed to increase the toughness of the weld and therefore ease the
manipulation of the welded structures, but wich have not yet been subjected to stress relieving. This ETC PH KV series of
electrodes also reduce the risk of flaws appearing during the welding procedures. This electrodes bear a countersign, KV-L, wich
refers to the amount of C contained in the weld and is particularly low in this series.
In the KV L series ETC has recently introduced the HP electrodes (High Purity) with an extremely low content of Sulpher and
Phosphorous, so that to allow considerable improvements with regard to cracking and impact value.
Given that products with a low alloy element are less brittle, the ETC PH KV 1 is not produced according to the L modification.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA DI ACCIAI RESISTENTI ALLO SCORRIMENTO A CALDO (CR-MO)
Il fenomeno dello scorrimento a caldo nelle costruzioni soggette ad elevate temperature ben noto a tutti. Un carico continuo sia
pure per il valore inferiore al limite di snervamento dell'acciaio pu causare, a temperature di esercizio fra 200-600C, una
deformazione permanente chiamata scorrimento a caldo. Il cromo e il molibdeno prevengono il fenomeno dello scorrimento a
caldo e aumentato contemporaneamente la temperatura di ossidazione dell'acciaio. Per l'esecuzione di determinate strutture a
vari livelli di temperatura stata studiata e messa a punto tutta una gamma di acciai legati con diverse percentuali di cromo e
molibdeno. Per ognuno di questi acciai stato studiato un elettrodo appropriato, che deposita cio un metallo di analoga analisi
chimica, offrendo la stessa resistenza allo scorrimento e la stessa temperatura di ossidazione.
Raccomandazioni per la saldatura degli elettrodi ETC PH KV
Gli elettrodi della serie ETC PH KV sono realizzati con un rivestimento di tipo basico.
Anche per questi elettrodi valgono le ben note norme relative alla saldatura degli elettrodi basici in genere cio arco corto, pi
ridotta velocit di avanzamento, passata non troppo larga. Sia gli acciai resistenti allo scorrimento che i relativi elettrodi, grazie
al contenuto di cromo e molibdeno, hanno una pi alta temprabilit. La grande temprabilit impone particolare attenzione al
contenuto di idrogeno del metallo depositato.
Gli elettrodi ETC PH della serie KV vengono forniti con un rivestimento essicato prodondamente e pertanto si raccomanda di
tenerli in un ambiente asciutto. Gli elementi leganti che sono contenuti nel rivestimento dell'elettrodo influenzeranno, via via che
il loro tenore aumenta, la saldabilit dell'elettrodo. Infatti un saldatore di abilit normale pu rilevare differenze nella saldabilit
dei tipi di elettrodi ETC PH della serie KV a seconda che il contenuto dei leganti risulti pi alto o pi basso.
Trattamento termico dopo la saldatura
Per quanto rigurda il trattamento termico dopo la saldatura si consiglia di seguire le raccomandazioni del fabbricante dell' acciaio.
I dati indicati nei programmi, relativi al trattamento termico dopo la saldatura devono quindi considerarsi puramente indicativi. Si
consiglia il trattamento termico dell'acciaio che dovr essere compiuto immediatamente dopo l'esecuzione della saldatura. La
temperatura di interpass dovr, se possibile, essere mantenuta fino all'introduzione della saldatura nel forno di ricottura.
Elettrodi ETC a basso tenore di carbonio
La saldatura degli acciai legati al Cr-Mo presenta delle difficolt legate al problema della fragilit. Infatti, come ben noto, dopo
la saldatura, le strutture vengono sottoposte ad un trattamento termico che consiste sostanzialmente in un trattamento di
distensione, allo scopo di aumentare la tenacit che pu essere controllata per mezzo delle prove di resilienza.
In pratica si constatato che in condizioni di tensioni elevate, gli elettrodi debolmente legati al Cr e Mo possono dare luogo a
cricche gi durante la saldatura ed in particolare modo durante la prima passata. Ora, per aumentare la tenacit della saldatura
e quindi per facilitare la manipolazione delle costruzioni saldate, ma non ancora sottoposte al trattamento di distensione, e per
diminuire il rischio della criccatura durante il procedimento di saldatura, la ETC ha realizzato una serie di elettrodi di ETC PH KV
che presentano particolari vantaggi nei riguardi di questo fenomeno. Questi elettrodi portano la sigla KV-L, sigla che si riferisce
alla percentuale di C contenuta nella saldatura che risulta per questa serie notevolmente bassa.
Nella serie KV L, la ETC Elettrotermochimica ha introdotto gli elettrodi HP (High Purity) nei quali sono presenti valori estremamente
bassi di impurezze (S e P), permettendo cos di ottenere miglioramenti dal punto di vista della criccabilit e della tenacit.
Dato che il pericolo della fragilit ovviamente minore per i prodotti a basse percentuali di elementi leganti, il tipo ETC PH KV 1
non viene prodotto secondo la modificazione L.

D
ELEKTRODEN FR DAS VERSCHWEIEN VON WARMFESTEN STAHL (CR-MO)
Das Phnomen des Warmgleitens bei hohen Temperaturen ist allgemein bekannt. Eine andauernde Belastung, auch unter
Grenzwerten der Materialerlahmung des Stahls, kann bei einer Betriebstemperatur von 200-600 C eine bleibende Verformung
verursachen. Chrom und Molybdn verhindern das Warmgleiten und erhhen gleichzeitig die Oxydationsbestndigkeit des Stahls.
Fr das Verschweien von bestimmten Strukturen in unterschiedlichen Temperaturzonen, wurden verschiedene, legierte
Stahltypen mit unterschiedlichem Anteilen von Chrom und Molybdn erforscht und ausgearbeitet. Fr jeden dieses Stahltyps ist
eine besondere Elektrode vorgesehen, deren Schweigut der chemischen Zusammensetzung des Stahls entspricht und daher bei
Warmgleiten und der Oxidationstemperatur die gleichen Eigenschaften wie der Stahl aufweist.
Anweisungen fr das Verschweien von Elektroden ETC PH KV
Die Elektroden der Serie ETC PH KV sind mit einer basischen Ummantelung versehen. Auch fr diese Elektroden gelten die
allgemeinen Vorschriften fr das Verschweien von basischen Elektroden, d.h. kurzer Lichtbogen, verringerte
Schrittgeschwindigkeit und nicht zu breite Spalten. Der warmfeste Stahl und die entsprechenden Elektroden haben Dank des
Chrom- und Molybdnanteiles eine grere Hrtbarkeit.
Eine groe Hrtbarkeit verlangt besondere Aufmerksamkeit hinsichtlich des Wasserstoffgehaltes im freigegebenen Metall.
Die Elektroden ETC PH der Serie KV werden mit einer stark getrockneten Ummantelung ausgeliefert und mssen daher an einem
trockenen Ort gelagert werden. Die in der Ummantelung der Elektroden enthaltenen Bindemittel, beeinflussen mit ansteigender
Feuchtigkeit die Schweibarkeit der Elektroden. Ein gebter Schweier kann diesen Unterschied bei der Schweibarkeit der
Elektroden ETC PH der Serie KV nach der jeweiligen Konzentration der Bindemittel beurteilen.
Thermische Behandlung nach dem Verschweien
Fr die thermische Nachbehandlung raten wir die Hinweise des Stahlherstellers zu beachten.
Die in den Programmen angegebenen Daten fr die thermische Nachbehandlung sind als unverbindliche Daten zu betrachtet.
Eine thermische Nachbehandlung des Stahls wird unmittelbar nach dem Schweivorgang empfohlen.
Die Interpass-Temperatur sollte mglichst bis zur Einbringung des Schweigutes in den Glhofen gehalten werden.
ETC Elektroden mit niedrigem Kohlenstoffgehalt
Das Verschweien von Stahl mit CR-Mo Legierung kann auf Grund eines greren Bruchrisikos zu Problemen fhren. Wie
allgemein bekannt ist, werden die Strukturen nach dem Verschweien einer thermischen Behandlung unterzogen, die substantiell
in einem Entspannungsglhen besteht, um die Festigkeit zu erhhen, die durch Kerbschlagzhigkeitsteste geprft werden kann.
Unter hoher Belastung knnen Elektroden mit schwacher Cr und Mo Legierung schon whrend des Verschweiens, und
insbesondere schon bei der ersten Schweinaht Risse aufweisen. Fr hrtere Schweinhte und eine einfache Handhabung der
verschweiten, aber noch nicht dem Entspannungsglhen unterzogenen Konstruktionen, sowie fr die Vermeidung der
Rissbildung whrend des Schweivorganges, hat die ETC eine Reihe von Elektroden ETC PH KV hergestellt, die diesem Problem
Rechnung tragen. Diese Elektroden haben die Bezeichnung KV-L, die sich auf den Prozentsatz des Kohlenstoff-Gehaltes in der
Schweinaht bezieht, der hier extrem niedrig ist.
Die Serie KV L wurde von der ETC um die Elektroden HP (High Purity) erweitert, die eine extrem niedrige Verunreinigung (S und P)
aufweist und daher geringe Brchigkeit und hhere Festigkeit aufweist.
Da die Zerbrechlichkeit offensichtlich bei Produkten mit niedrigem Bindemittel-Gehalt
geringer ist, werden die Elektroden ETC PH KV 1, nach Version L hergestellt.

E
ELECTRODOS PARA LA SOLDADURA DE ACEROS RESISTENTES A LA FLUENCIA (Cr-Mo)
El fenmeno del agrietamiento en caliente en las construcciones sujetas a elevadas temperaturas y altas presiones es conocido
por todos. Continuas sobrecargas cuando se est por debajo de los valores de lmite elstico del acero, pueden provocar a
temperaturas de ejercicio entre 200-600C, una deformacin permanente llamada fluencia en caliente. El cromo y el molibdeno
previenen este fenmeno y al mismo tiempo incrementan la temperatura de oxidacin del acero. Para la ejecucin de distintas
estructuras a diversas temperaturas, existe una gama de aceros que han sido estudiados y desarrollados con distintos
porcentajes de cromo y molibdeno. Para cada tipo de acero ha sido estudiado un electrodo apropiado, que deposita un metal de
composicin qumica anloga, ofreciendo la misma resistencia a la fluencia y la misma resistencia a la oxidacin.
Recomendaciones para la soldadura con electrodos ETC PH KV
Los electrodos de la serie ETC PH KV estn fabricados con revestimiento de tipo bsico.
Se deben aplicar las ya bien conocidas normas generales para la soldadura de electrodos de bajo contenido en hidrgeno: arco
corto, baja velocidad de trabajo y cordones no demasiado largos. Tanto los aceros como los electrodos resistentes a la fluencia,
gracias a los contenidos de cromo y molibdeno consiguen una alta templabilidad, debiendo prestar una atencin especial en el
contenido de hidrgeno en el material depositado.
Los electrodos ETC PH de la serie KV estn fabricados con un recubrimiento altamente seco y por lo tanto es recomendable su
almacenamiento en lugares igualmente secos.
La soldabilidad de los electrodos depender de la ms o menos cantidad de elementos aleantes contenidos en el recubrimiento.
Por lo tanto, el soldador puede notar diferencias en dicha soldabilidad dependiendo del rango de consumible que utilice.
Tratamiento trmico despus de la soldadura
En referencia al tratamiento trmico post soldadura, se aconseja seguir las recomendaciones del fabricante del acero. Los datos
indicados para este tratamiento trmico, no obstante, deben ser tomados como puramente indicativos. Adems el tratamiento
deber realizarse inmediatamente despus de la ejecucin de la soldadura. La temperatura aplicada entre pasadas deber
mantenerse, cuando sea posible, hasta la introduccin en el horno de recocido.
Electrodos ETC con bajo contenido en carbono
La soldadura de aceros aleados al Cr-Mo presentan la dificultad de su fragilidad. Efectivamente, como es ya sabido, despus de
la soldadura existe un tratamiento trmico que bsicamente es para el aliviado de tensiones, con la finalidad de aumentar la
tenacidad que puede ser controlada por medio de las pruebas de resiliencia.
En la prctica se ha constatado que en condiciones de tensiones elevadas, con los electrodos dbilmente aleados al Cr-Mo
pueden darse lugar agrietamientos durante la soldadura y de modo particular durante la primera pasada.
ETC ha desarrollado la serie de electrodos ETC PH KV, que presentan particulares ventajas en cuanto a este fenmeno. Estos
electrodos se marcan con las siglas KV-L, indicativo de poseer un porcentaje muy bajo de C.
En la serie KV-L, ETC Elettrotermochimica ha introducido los electrodos HP (High Purity) en los que son presentes adems, valores
extremadamente bajos de impurezas (S y P), permitiendo as mejoras desde el punto de vista de la tenacidad y el agrietamiento.
Dado que el peligro de la fragilidad es obviamente menor para productos con bajo porcentaje de elementos aleantes, el tipo ETC
PH KV1 no se fabrican segn la modificacin L.

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING CRYOGENIC AND LOW TEMPERATURE RESISTING STEELS
The great development in the cryogenic industry, with the resulting savings in stocking and transport cost of liquified gas, have
taken up considerable research resources in the search for sufficiently malleable and tough steels that can be used at low and
extremely low working temperatures. Such research has resulted in the production of particularly treated, extremely fine grained
steels and nickel steels that can be subdivided as follows:
- fine grained steels for working temperatures up to about -50C
- fine grained steels or those with a 2.25% Ni content for working temperatures up to about -60C
- fine grained steels or those with a 3.50% Ni content for working temperatures up to about -101C
- fine grained steels or those with a 9% Ni content for working temperatures up to about -196C
The following pages give a list of the ETC electrodes that have been specially developed for each of the above types of steel.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA DI ACCIAI RESISTENTI ALLA BASSA TEMPERATURA E CRIOGENICI
Il grande sviluppo dell'industria criogenica, con la possibilit di realizzazione di grandissime economie nello stoccaggio e
trasporto dei gas liquefatti, ha notevolmente impegnato i metallurgisti con la ricerca di acciai sufficientemente duttili e tenaci a
basse ed estremamente basse temperature di esercizio. Tali ricerche hanno portato alla messa a punto di acciai a grano fine
particolarmente trattati e di acciai al nichel che possono essere cos suddivisi:
- acciai a grana fine, per temperature di esercizio fino a circa -50C
- acciai a grana fine o al 2.25% di Ni per temperature di esercizio fino a circa -60C
- acciai a grana fine o al 3.50%o di Ni per temperature di esercizio fino a circa -101C
- acciai a grana fine o al 9% di Ni per temperature di esercizio fino a circa -196C.
Nelle pagine seguenti si possono trovare gli elettrodi di ETC appositamente studiati e messi a punto per ognuno di questi tipi di
acciaio.

D
ELEKTRODEN FR DAS VERSCHWEIEN KRYOGENISCHEN UND KLTEBESTNDIGEM STAHL
Die explandierende Entwicklung der kryogenischen Industrie und des Wirtschaftszweiges fr die Lagerung und den Transport von
Flssiggas, hat die Metallindustrie zur Ausarbeitung einer dehnbaren, aber ausreichend festen Stahlsortel fr den Einsatz bei
niedrigen und extrem niedrigen Temperaturen veranlat. Das Resultat ist ein feinkrniger und speziell behandelter Stahl, sowie
ein Nickel-Stahl, der wie folgt klassifiziert werden kann:
- Feinkornbaustahl fr Betriebstemperaturen bis ca. -50 C;
- Feinkornbaustahl oder 2,25% Ni-Gehalt fr Betriebstemperaturen bis ca. -60C;
- Feinkornbaustahl oder 3,50% Ni-Gehalt fr Betriebstemperaturen bis ca. -101C;
- Feinkornbaustahl oder 9% Ni-Gehalt fr Betriebstemperaturen bis ca. -196C.
Nachfolgend finden Sie ETC Elektroden, die fr diese Stahlsorten geplant und ausgearbeitet wurden.

E
ELECTRODOS PARA SOLDADURA CRIOGENICA Y ACEROS RESISTENTES A BAJAS TEMPERATURAS
El gran desarrollo de la industria criognica, apoyado por la posibilidad de grandes ahorros econmicos en el almacenamiento y
transporte de gases licuados, ha motivado una investigacin y desarrollo por parte de los metalurgistas para conseguir unos
aceros lo suficientemente dctiles y tenaces a bajas e incluso extremadamente bajas temperaturas de ejercicio. Estos requisitos
han llevado a la puesta a punto de aceros de grano fino particularmente tratados y de aceros al nquel que se pueden subdividir
en:
- aceros de grano fino, para temperaturas de ejercicio hasta aproximadamente 50C
- aceros de grano fino al 2.25% Ni, para temperaturas de ejercicio prximas a 60C
- aceros de grano fino al 3.50% Ni, para temperaturas de ejercicio prximas a 101C
- aceros de grano fino al 9.00% Ni, para temperaturas de ejercicio prximas a 196C

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING HIGH TENSILE STEELS
Steels with a minimum yield point of 500 N/mm2 are generally highly resistant steels. Most of these are low alloy steels and,
because of their chemical composition, may be subject to hydrogen induced flaws.
Therefore, before welding, the elements which cause the release of hydrogen, such as dirt, grease, oxides etc., must be removed.
Welding these quality steels needs the PH 88, 98, 108, 118 or 128 types of electrodes. These electrodes are supplied in hermetically
sealed packs to prevent the absorption of humidity during transport and stocking. Generally, however the electrodes should be
furnace dried at a temperature of about 160C, before being used.
As soon as the electrodes have reached this temperature, they can be utilized. It is advisable not to take too many electrodes to
the welding station, but rather, only the number that can be used over a period of 2 hours and these should be put in damp proof
containers or portable furnaces.
Electrodes that have not been kept under such conditions should be reconditioned at a temperature of +420C for 2 hours and then
stored in a furnace at +160C.
In the event of welding high tensile steels, the joints must be more carefully checked than those required for a no alloy Carbon
steel.
Any configuration that has considerable changes in the joint section can not be accepted whenever the joint is subject to great
stress. Therefore, square edged joints are better than V shaped ones. The square edged joints should be welded on both sides to
avoid stress at the top of the weld. Moreover, joints of this type can be easily inspected.
The spot welding and the root run must be carried out with an electrode, that has a yeld point which is lower than the electrode
used for filling the joint. After having filled, or partially filled one side of the joint, the other side should be welded after the flaws
have been removed from the penetration run. After the flaws have been removed with carbon electrodes, it is necessary to grind
and remove at least 1 mm of material. It is also common practice to carry out vertical V welds, using an electrode with a yield
point that is inferior to the electrode used for making the flat, square edged joint.
In order to ensure that the area subjected to a change of heat is sufficiently impact resistant, the steel supplier's
recommendations about the preheating and interpass temperature must be followed. Such advice should also be followed for spot
welding and penetration runs.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA DI ACCIAI AD ALTA RESISTENZA
Gli acciai con uno snervamento minimo di 500 N/mm2 in genere rientrano nella categoria degli acciai ad alta resistenza. La
maggior parte di questi acciai sono debolmente legati e, a causa della loro composizione chimica, possono diventare sensibili alla
fessurazione da idrogeno.
Pertanto, prima della saldatura, si dovranno eliminare le cause che provocano lo sviluppo di idrogeno, come lo sporco, il grasso,
gli ossidi, etc.
La saldatura di questi acciai di qualit prevede l'impiego di elettrodi come i tipi ETC PH 88, 89, 108, 118 e 128 . Questi elettrodi
vengono forniti in confezioni ermeticamente chiuse per prevenire l'assorbimento di umidit durante il trasporto ed il
magazzinaggio. Tuttavia, in generale, si raccomanda di essicare gli elettrodi.
Nel caso di saldatura di acciai ad alta resistenza i controlli dei giunti devono essere pi accurati che non quelli richiesti per un
acciaio al carbonio non legato.
Una configurazione che presenti grossi cambiamenti di sezione del giunto non pu essere accettata, qualora il giunto sia
sottoposto ad alti sforzi. Pertanto si dovranno preferire dei giunti a lembi quadrati a quelli con preparazione a V. I giunti a lembi
quadrati vanno saldati da entrambi i lati, per evitare l'insorgere di tensioni al vertice della saldatura. Inoltre i giunti di questo tipo
possono venire pi facilmente ispezionati.
La puntatura e la passata di fondo devono essere eseguite con un elettrodo che abbia il limite di snervamento inferiore a quello
dell'elettrodo impiegato per il riempimento del giunto. Dopo aver riempito, o parzialmente riempito, un lato del giunto, I'altro lato
andr saldato dopo scriccatura della passata di penetrazione. Dopo scriccatura con elettrodi di carbone sar necessario molare
e togliere almeno 1 mm di materiale. pratica comune, anche, eseguire i giunti verticali con preparazione a V con un elettrodo
che abbia un limite di snervamento inferiore a quello di un elettrodo usato per l'esecuzione di un giunto piano a lembi quadrati.

ELEKTRODEN FR DAS VERSCHWEIEN VON STAHL MIT HOHER BESTNDIGKEIT
Stahl mit einem Mindest-Erlahmungswert von 500 N/mm2 gehrt in der Regel zu der Klasse der Stahlsorten mit hoher
Bestndigkeit. Meistens sind diese Stahltypen nur schwach legiert und auf Grund ihrer chemischen Zusammensetzung
empfindlich gegen Rissbildung durch Wasserstoff.
Aus diesem Grund mssen vor dem Schweien mssen alle Ursachen beseitigt werden, die zur Bildung von Wasserstoff
beitragen knnen, wie z.B. Schmutz, Fett, Oxyde usw.
Das Verschweien dieser Stahlsorten verlangt den Einsatz von Elektroden des Typs ETC PH 88, 89, 108, 118 und 128. Diese
Elektroden werden in einer Vakuumverpackung geliefert, um eine Feuchtigkeitsaufnahme whrend des Transportes oder der
Lagerung zu vermeiden. Es wird auf jeden Fall empfohlen die Elektroden vor dem Gebrauch zu trocknen.
Beim Verschweien von hochfestem Stahl, mssen die Schweinhte sorgfltiger kontrolliert werden, als es bei einem
unlegierten Stahl erforderlich ist.
Auch bei groer Belastung darf die Naht ihre Eigenschaften nicht verlieren. Bei groer Schweinahtbelastung ist eine
Kantennaht vorzuziehen. Kantennhte werden beidseitig verschweit, um Spannungen am Nahtanfang und Nahtende zu
vermeiden. Diese Art von Schweinaht ist leicht zu kontrollieren.
Heftarbeiten und die Basisschweinaht mssen mit einer Elektrode ausfhrt werden, deren Erlahmungslimit niedriger ist als jenes
der Elektrode fr das Ausfllen der Naht. Nachdem die eine Seite der Naht ganz oder teilweise gefllt wurde, wird die andere
Seite nach dem Brennputzen der Basisschweinaht geschweit.
Nach dem Brennputzen mit Kohlenstoffelektroden, mu mindestens 1 mm Material gelockert und abgetragen werden. Vertikal VNhte werden einfachshalber mit einer Elektrode ausgefhrt, deren Erlahmungslimit unter dem Limit der Elektrode fr die flache
Kantennaht liegt.

E
ELECTRODOS PARA LA SOLDADURA DE ACEROS DE ALTO LIMITE ELSTICO
Los aceros con un lmite elstico mnimo de 500 N/mm2 entran en general en la categora de aceros de alta resistencia. La mayor
parte de estos aceros son dbilmente aleados y a causa de su composicin qumica son susceptibles de sufrir fisuraciones por
hidrgeno.
As pues, antes de la ejecucin de la soldadura, deberemos eliminar las causas que provocan el desarrollo del hidrgeno, como
la suciedad, la grasa, los xidos, etc.
La soldadura de los aceros de esta calidad, est prevista con los electrodos del tipo ETC PH 88, 98, 108, 118 y 128. Estos electrodos
se presentan en cajas hermticamente cerradas para prevenir la absorcin de humedad durante el transporte y su
almacenamiento. Es recomendable no obstante, el secado de los electrodos antes de ser usados.
En el caso de soldadura de aceros de alta resistencia, el control de las juntas deber ser ms meticuloso que en el de los aceros
al carbono. Una presentacin de juntas irregulares y de distinta seccin no es aceptable ya que estaran expuestas a altos
esfuerzos. As pues, es preferible la preparacin de juntas con talones o bordes cuadrados en vez de en V. Las juntas con bordes
cuadrados pueden ser soldadas por ambos lados, para evitar la aparicin de excesivas tensiones en el vrtice de la soldadura.
Adems las juntas de este tipo se inspeccionan de manera ms fcil.
Tanto las pasadas de raiz como los punteados, se deben ejecutar con un electrodo que tenga un lmite elstico inferior al del
electrodo a utilizar en la fase de relleno de la junta. Una vez terminado total o parcialmente este relleno de un lado, se proceder
a eliminar el cordn de penetracin, comenzando la soldadura de la otra cara ya con el consumible adecuado. Tambin es una
prctica comn ejecutar la soldadura en juntas en vertical, con una preparacin de bordes en V, utilizando un electrodo que tenga
un lmite elstico inferior al utilizado normalmente para la soldadura en plano con juntas con bordes cuadrados.
Para asegurar que la zona afectada trmicamente mantiene una suficiente resistencia al impacto, se deben seguir las
recomendaciones de los fabricantes de los aceros en cuanto a tratamientos de precalentamiento y temperaturas entre pasadas
a aplicar.

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING COR-TEN STEELS
Round about 1936, the UNITED STATES STEEL Co. introduced onto the market a new type of low alloy steel but which was also
highly resistant to corrosion.
This type of steel, called COR-TEN gives:
CORrosion resistance
TENsile strength.
The COR-TEN steel arrived in Europe, in considerable quantities, around 1958 and is actually produced in some European steel
works under licence from UNITED STATES STEEL. In Italy, this type of steel is produced by Italsider, in three different versions, A
- B - C. Each type has different mechanical properties and resistance to atmospheric corrosion and weak acids. Because of the
architectural beauty obtained, A type is used by lhe building industry; because of the good mechanical properties type B and C
are used for various structural works.
ETC has, for many years, been working on these types of COR-TEN steels and has, consequently, considerable experience in the
field. The Company has developed electrodes which, because of the weld metal, exactly reflect the characteristics of the
respective base materials.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA DELL'ACCIAIO COR-TEN
Attorno al 1936 la UNITED STATES STEEL present sul mercato americano un tipo di acciaio debolmente legato avente una elevata
resistenza alla corrosione atmosferica. Tale tipo di acciaio fu denominato COR-TEN, da:
CORrosion resistance - resistenza alla corrosione. TENsile strenght - resistenza meccanica.
L'acciaio COR-TEN apparve in Europa, in misura apprezzabile, soltanto attorno al 1958: viene attualmente prodotto da alcune
acciaierie Europee su licenza della UNITED STATES STEEL e in Italia, dalla Italsider in tre versioni diverse A - B - C, differenziate
dalle rispettive caratteristiche meccaniche e di resistenza alla corrosione atmosferica e da acidi deboli; vengono impiegati normalmente allo stato non trattato - nei campi pi diversi che vanno dall'edilizia, per gli effetti architettonici di particolare bellezza
del tipo A, ai pi disparati campi della carpenteria generale dove vengono applicati per le buone caratteristiche meccaniche dei
tipi B e C.
L'ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l. che lavora da anni sull'acciaio COR-TEN ha acquistato una notevole esperienza nel campo, ed
giunta alla messa a punto di elettrodi il cui metallo d'apporto risponde alle caratteristiche dei rispettivi materiali di base.

D
ELEKTRODEN FR DAS VERSCHWEIEN VON COR-TEN STAHL
Um das Jahr 1936 hat die UNITED STATES STEEL einen schwach legierten Stahl in Amerika auf den Markt gebracht, der sich als
extrem witterungsbestndig erwiesen hat.
Dieser Stahl wurde COR-TEN genannt, d.h.:
CORrosion resistance - korrosionsbestndig
TENsile strenght - Zerreifestigkeit
Der Stahl COR-TEN erlangt in Europa erst 1958 eine Bedeutung. Er wird heute in einigen Stahlwerken Europas, unter Lizenz der
UNITED STATES STEEL produziert. In Italien stellt die Italsider diesen Stahl in drei verschiedenen Ausfhrungen, A - B - und C, her.
Sie unterscheiden sich vom schwachen Stahl durch unterschiedliche Eigenschaften, hhere Festigkeit und grere
Witterungsbestndigkeit. Sie werden, in den verschiedensten Bereichen normalerweise unbehandelt eingesetzt: im Bauwesen
der Typ A wegen seines ueren Aspektes bei der architektonischen Gestaltung und auf breiter Ebene im Handwerk, wo die Typen
B und C wegen ihrer groen Festigkeit sehr geschtzt sind.

Vienen siendo aplicados, normalmente sin tratamientos trmicos, en campos como la arquitectura de edificios por sus bellos
resultados (tipo A), o en las ms diversas estructuras industriales por sus buenas propiedades mecnicas (tipos B y C).
ETC Elettrotermochimica S.r.l. que trabaja desde hace aos sobre el acero COR-TEN, ha adquirido una notable experiencia en este

Low Hydrogen electrodes suitable for welding of steels having high atmospheric corrosion
resistance and high content of P and Cu. Ideal for Cor-Ten A steel welding. Due to its
characteristics of high atmospheric corrosion resistance and also mechanical resistance,
comparing to a simple Carbon steel, Cor-Ten is particularly suitable to build movable
structures, as lorries, trailers, etc. Cor-Ten is also used by building industries because of the
particular colour of its surface which does not need any further painting. The deposit made
with ETC PH 85CP has the very same appearance as Cor-Ten A steel.

Elettrodo basico per la saldatura di acciai resistenti alla corrosione atmosferica, contenenti
percentuali relativamente alto di fosforo rame. Idoneo per la saldatura dell'acciaio Cor-Ten A.
L'alta resistenza alla corrosione ed alla abrasione atmosferica, e l'alta resistenza meccanica,
confrontate a quelle di un acciaio al carbonio normale, rendono il Cor-Ten idoneo alla
costruzione di strutture mobili, come autocarri, rimorchi, macchine movimento terra, etc.
Esso viene impiegato pure nelle costruzioni edili, poich la particolare colorazione della
superficie fa s che non vi sia bisogno di vernice. Il deposito dello ETC PH 85CP ha le stesse
caratteristiche dell'acciaio Cor-Ten A.

Korrosionsbestndigkeit, sowie dem hohen Festigkeitsgrad besonders geeignet fr mobile
Konstruktionen, wie Lastwagen, Anhnger, Bagger etc. Dieser Stahl wird auch im Bauwesen

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING IN OFFSHORE APPLICATIONS
For some time, the large petrol companies intensified their search to extract petrol from the sea bottom. In order to do so, it is
necessary to construct platforms that the rest on the sea bottom and rise many tens of metres out of the sea. These gigantic steel
structures are mostly made of a series of tubes welded together.
The particular dynamic stresses to which they are subjected and the critical working conditions found in this type of environment
have severely tested the manufacturers of the various materials used on the platforms. ETC has over many years, developed a
complete range of products for off shore welding. Many of these have already been successfully used, attesting to their worth.
We would remind you that our Technical Commercial Staff is at your complete disposal and can give you any information that you
may require.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA OFFSHORE
Da tempo le pi grandi case petrolifere intensificano le ricerche per estrarre il petrolio perforando il fondo del mare. Per fare
questo bisogna erigere delle piattaforme che poggiando sul fondo del mare arrivando ad emergere di molte decine di metri.
Queste gigantesche strutture di acciaio sono per lo pi composte da tubi saldati tra loro.
Le particolari sollecitazioni dinamiche a cui sono sottoposte queste strutture e le critiche condizioni ambientali di lavoro hanno
messo a dura prova le case fornitrici di materiale. L'ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l. da anni dispone di una completa gamma di
consumabili per la saldatura di offshore. Molti di questi sono gi stati impiegati con successo e ne testimoniano la validit.

ELEKTRODEN FR DAS OFFSHORE-SCHWEIEN
Seit einiger Zeit haben die groen Erdlfrderungsgesellschaften ihre Forschungen fr die Gewinnung von Erdl durch das
Anbohren des Meeresgrund erweitert. Zu diesem Zweck werden Plattformen bentigt, deren Struktur mehrere Meter aus dem
Wasser ragt und wo die Fundamente auf dem Meeresboden verankert sind.
Diese riesigen Stahlkonstruktionen bestehen vorwiegend aus verschweiten Rohrgestellen. Die hohe dynamische Belastung und
die kritischen Witterungsverhltnisse, denen diese Konstruktionen ausgesetzt sind, haben die Hersteller von Schweimaterial vor
eine groe Aufgabe gestellt. Die ETC Elettrotermochimica verfgt seit Jahren ber eine komplette Auswahl von Zusatzwerkstoffen
fr das Offshore-Schweien. Viele dieser Werkstoffe sind bereits zum Einsatz gekommen und konnten ihre Tauglichkeit unter

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING OF CHROME-NICKEL AUSTENITIC STAINLESS STEELS
General characteristics
The term stainless steel indicates any steel which contains sufficient Cr to make it corrosion resistant in an aggresive
environment. The minimum quantity of Cr required is about 11-12%.
Another important characteristic derives from the presence of austenitic elements such as nickel, which should be sufficient to
render the matrix austenitic at all temperatures.
Stainless steels are generally used because of their excellent mechanical resistance and oxidation at high temperatures.
Low temperature resilience
Austenitic stainless steels are highly resilient and are so malleable that they can not easily be fractured at low temperatures.
Because of this intrinsic characteristic, they are often used to produce equipement designed to function at low temperatures, also
very much below 0C. When welded, the metal deposited normally contains a certain amount of delta ferrite which can change in
the sigma phase, as a result of stress relieving by heat or stabilization of the weld at temperatures between 650C and 925C. This
phase generally leads to a reduction in the malleability and toughness.
Ferrite and sigma phase
Even completely austenitic compositions in the semifinished state may contain small islands of delta ferrite in an austenitic matrix
in the casting phase or molten metal due to welding. The presence of ferrite in the structure of the deposited metal depends mainly
on the chemical composition. Many stainless steels that are corrosion resistant have in fact, a highly critical field of stability in
the various phases and their totally austenitic partially ferritic field depends on the balance of the chemical composition.
Given that the completely austenitic deposits may be, in certain cases, subject to hot cracks, the presence of ferrite prevents this
tendency. It can, therefore, be said that in this phase, as oportunely balanced percentage is beneficial, as well as being a
"lubrificant" for the crystaline grain which makes the reticular structure more malleable.
The presence of this phase can be found by means of magnetic systems. Heat treatme after welding can reduce or even eliminate
the ferrite in a weld deposit. In an austenitic structure ferrite and carbides may be found as well as an intermetalic chrome and
iron compound called "sigma phase". This compound is normally formed when the ferrite is transformed as a result of keeping the
steel at temperature between, 650C and 925Cfor a long time. This temperature depends on the chemical composition and
structure of the steel. The sigma phasecan, however, also arise in austenitic matrices.
The sigma phase can bring about the reduction in the corrosion resistance, but above all, there is a loss of malleabily and
resilience. Given the high temperature reached by the electrical arc, it is possible to find this phase in the deposited metal on
welding. It should be remembered that the sigma phase is very harmful, it may be dissoluted in the austenite on trasformed into
delta ferrite by heating the steel above maximum stability temperature of the phase.
ETC Elettrotermochimica check every type of austenitic electrode and each production lot, for ferrite in the deposit.
The values are analysed and may be certified in accordance with: Schaffler; De Long; Espy; WRC; Permascope.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA DEGLI ACCIAI INOSSIDABILI AUSTENITICI AL CROMO-NICHEL
Caratteristiche generali
Con il nome di acciaio inossidabile si suole indicare qualsiasi acciaio nel quale sia presente l'elemento Cr in quanto tale da
renderlo resistente alla corrosione in ambiente aggressivo. Il tenore minimo di Cr si aggira intorno all' 11-12%.
Altra caratteristica importante costituita da quella conseguente alla presenza di elementi austenitici, di solito nichel, in quantit
tale da creare una matrice austenitica a tutte le temperature.
Gli acciai inossidabili sono sovente impiegati per l'eccellente resistenza meccanica ed all'ossidazione ad elevate temperature.
Resilienza alle basse temperature
Gli acciai inossidabili austenitici danno elevati valori di resilienza ed un'alta percentuale di duttilit alla rottura alle basse
temperature. Per tale loro intrinseca caratteristica sono molto usati in apparecchiature destinate a lavorare a temperature anche
molto al di sotto di OC. Allo stato saldato il metallo depositato contiene normalmente una certa quantit di ferrite delta, la quale
pu trasformarsi in fase sigma a seguito di un eventuale trattamento termico di distensione o di stabilizzazione delle saldature nel
campo tra 650C e 925C. La presenza di tale fase porta generalmente ad una diminuzione della duttilit e della tenacit.
Fase sigma e ferrite
Anche composizioni completamente austenictiche allo stato semi-lavorato possono presentare, allo stato di getto o di metallo
fuso di saldatura, piccole isole di ferrite delta in una matrice austenitica. La presenza o l'assenza di ferrite nella struttura del
metallo depositato dipende principalmente dalla composizione chimica. Infatti molti acciai inossidabili resistenti alla corrosione
hanno un campo altamente critico di stabilit delle varie fasi ed il loro campo totalmente austenitico o parzialmente ferritico
dipende dal bilanciamento della composizione chimica.
Poich i depositi completamente austenitici possono essere in certi casi soggetti a cricche a caldo, la presenza di ferrite inibisce
tale tendenza. Si pu pertanto dire che la presenza di tale fase, in percentuale opportunamente bilanciata, benefica oltre a
costituire un "lubrificante" del grano cristallino, che conferisce alla struttura reticolare maggiore duttilit.
La presenza di questa fase pu essere rilevata con sistemi magnetici. I trattamenti termici dopo la saldatura possono diminuire o
addiruttura eliminare la ferrite in un deposito di saldatura. possibile trovare in una struttura costituita da austenite, ferrite e
carburi un composto intermetallico di cromo e ferro detto "fase sigma". Questo composto si forma normalmente per trasformazione
della ferrite a seguito di un mantenimento prolungato dell'acciaio a temperature tra 650 e 925C; tale temperatura funzione della
composizione chimica e strutturale dell'acciaio. La fase pu tuttavia originarsi anche in matrici austenitiche.
La fase sigma pu provocare una diminuzione della resistenza alla corrosione, ma soprattutto si manifesta con una perdita di
duttilit e resilienza. Date le alte temperature raggiunte dall'arco elettrico possibile riscontrare la presenza di tale fase in metallo
depositato allo stato saldato. Poich la presenza di fase sigma molto dannosa, si pu ottenere la sua dissoluzione nell'austenite,
o la trasformazione in ferrite delta, mediante riscaldamento dell'acciaio al di sopra della temperatura massima di stabilit della
fase.
Il controllo della ferrite nel deposito viene da ETC Elettrotermochimica fatto per ogni tipo di elettrodo austenitico e per ogni lotto
di produzione. I valori vengono analizzati e possono essere certificati in accordo a: Schaffler; De Long; Espy; WRC; Permascope.

D
ELEKTRODEN FR DAS VERSCHWEIEN VON AUSTENITISCHEM, ROSTFREIEM CHROM-NICKEL-STAHL
Allgemeine Eigenschaften
Als rostfreier Stahl gelten allgemein alle Stahlsorten, die auf Grund ihres Chrom-Gehaltes, unter aggressiven Bedingungen,
korrosionsbestndig sind.
Dieser Stahl mu Mindestgehalt an Chrom (11-12%) aufweisen.
Eine weitere wichtige Eigenschaft ist ein Gehalt an austenitischen Elementen (normalerweise Nickel), der ausreichend ist, um bei
allen Temperaturen eine austenitische Matrize zu bilden.
Die rostfreien Stahlsorten sind bewhrt wegen ihrer auergewhnlichen mechanischen Bestndigkeit und dem Widerstand
gegen Oxydation bei hohen Temperaturen.
Kerbschlagzhigkeit bei niedrigen Temperaturen
Die rostfreien, austenitischen Stahlsorten zeigen bei Bruch durch niedrigen Temperaturen eine groe Kerbschlagzhigkeit und
hohen Dehnbarkeitsgrad. Auf Grund dieser besonderen Eigenschaften finden sie Einsatz bei Gerten, die bei Temperaturen auch
weit unter 0C eingesetzt werden. Im verschweiten Zustand enthlt das Metall normalerweise eine bestimmte Menge an DeltaFerrit, das sich bei einer eventuellen Wrmebehandlung (Entspannung oder Stabilisierung der Schweinaht zwischen 650 und
925C) in eine Sigma-Phase umwandeln kann. Eine derartige Umformung fhrt im allgemeinen zu einer Verringerung der
Dehnbarkeit und der Festigkeit.
Sigma-Phase und Ferrit
Auch voll austenitische, halbfertige Zusammensetzungen knnen in Form von Gu oder flssigem Metall fr das Schweien,
kleine Inseln von Delta-Ferrit in einer austenitischen Matrize bilden. Der Anteil, oder das Fehlen von Ferrit in dem aufgetragenen
Metallgefge, hngt vorwiegend von der chemischen Zusammensetzung ab. Viele rostfreie, korrosionsbestndige Stahlsorten
haben ein sehr kritisches Stabilittsfeld bei den verschiedenen Phasen und ein voll austenitisches oder teilweise ferritisches Feld
hngt von einer ausgewogen chemischen Zusammensetzung ab. Voll austenitische Lagen unterliegen in einigen Fllen einer
Rissbildung durch Wrme; ein Vorhandensein von Ferriten hemmt diese Tendenz. Eine solche Phase kann also bei einem
ausgeglichenen Verhltnis nur von Vorteil sein und auerdem eine Schmierung der Kristallkrnung veranlassen,, wodurch der
Netzstruktur eine hhere Dehnbarkeit verliehen wird.
Diese Phase kann mit magnetischen Systemen gemessen werden. Eine Wrmebehandlung nach dem Schweien kann das Ferrit
in dem Schweigut reduzieren oder sogar ganz entfernen. In einem Schweigefge aus Austenit, Ferrit und Karbid kann eine
intermetallische Verbindung aus Chrom und Eisen, eine sogenannte Sigma-Phase entstehen. Diese Verbindung entsteht
normalerweise durch Umwandlung des Ferrits, infolge einer andauernden Erhitzung des Stahls bei 650 und 925C. Bei dieser
Temperatur erfolgt die chemische und strukturelle Zusammensetzung des Stahls. Diese Phase kann auch in der austenitischen
Matrize
seinen Ursprung haben.
Die Sigma-Phase kann den Widerstand gegen Korrosion verringern, aber vorallem fhrt sie zu einem Verlust der Dehnbarkeit und
der Kerbschlagzhigkeit. Durch die hohen Temperaturen des elektrischen Lichtbogens kann sich diese Phase in verschweitem
Metall bilden.
Die Bildung einer Sigma-Phase ist auf jeden Fall nicht von Vorteil; sie kann durch die Erwrmung des Stahls auf eine Temperatur
ber der max. Temperatur der Phasenstabilitt im Austenit entfernt oder in Delta-Ferrit umgewandelt werden.
Eine Ferritkontrolle des Schweiguts erfolgt seitens der ETC Elettrotermochimica fr alle austenitischen Elektrodentypen und fr
jede Produktenserie. Die Werte werden analysiert und knnen nach Schaffler, De Long, Espy, WRC oder Permascope im Zertifikat
dargestellt werden.

E
ELECTRODOS PARA LA SOLDADURA DE ACEROS INOXIDABLES AUSTENITICOS AL CROMO-NIQUEL
Caractersticas generales
Con el nombre de acero inoxidable se suele indicar cualquier acero que presenta el elemento del Cr de tal manera que consiga
una resistencia a la corrosin en ambientes agresivos. El contenido mnimo de Cr oscila entre el 11-12%.
Otra caracterstica importante es la presencia de elementos austenticos, en general el Ni, con una cantidad tal que sea capaz
de crear una matriz austentica a todas las temperaturas.
Los aceros inoxidables son muy utilizados por su excelente resistencia mecnica, a la oxidacin y a temperaturas elevadas.
Resiliencia a bajas temperaturas
Los aceros inoxidables austenticos dan elevados valores de resiliencia y un alto porcentaje de resistencia a la rotura a baja
temperatura. Por tal caracterstica intrnseca, son muy usados en la fabricacin de equipos destinados a trabajar a temperaturas
bajo cero. Cuando es soldado, el material depositado contiene normalmente una cierta cantidad de ferrita delta, la cual puede
transformase en la fase sigma cuando procedemos por ejemplo a un tratamiento trmico de distensionado de la soldadura en
rangos comprendidos entre 650C y 925C. La presencia de tal fase viene acompaada generalmente de una disminucin de la
ductilidad y de la tenacidad.
Ferrita y fase sigma
Algunas composiciones completamente austenticas en un estado semiterminado pueden presentar, en estado de colada o de
metal fundido de soldadura, pequeas islas de ferrita delta, en una matriz austentica. La presencia o ausencia de ferrita en la
estructura del metal depositado depende de la composicin qumica . En efecto, muchos aceros inoxidables resistentes a la
corrosin poseen un campo altamente crtico de estabilidad en las distintas fases y en los campos totalmente austenticos o
parcialmente ferrticos depende del equilibrado de la composicin qumica.
Ya que los depsitos completamente austenticos pueden estar en ciertos casos sujetos a fisuraciones en caliente, la presencia
de ferrita inhibe tal tendencia. Por lo tanto se puede decir que la presencia de tal fase, oportunamente equilibrada y porcentuada
es beneficioso al constituir un lubrificante del grano cristalino, que confiere a la estructura reticular mayor ductilidad.
La presencia de esta fase puede ser detectada con sistemas magnticos; los tratamientos trmicos despus de la soldadura
pueden disminuir o prcticamente eliminar la ferrita de un depsito de soldadura. Es posible encontrar en una estructura
constituida de austenita, ferrita y carburos como un compuesto intermetlico de hierro y cromo, denominada fase sigma. Este
compuesto se forma normalmente por la transformacin de la ferrita a continuacin de un mantenimiento prolongado del acero
a temperaturas entre 650 y 925C; esta temperatura esta en funcin de la composicin qumica y de la estructura del acero. Esta
fase incluso se puede originar en matrices austenticas.
La fase sigma puede provocar un disminucin de la resistencia a la corrosin, pero sobre todo se manifiesta con una prdida
dctil y de resiliencia . Dadas las altas temperaturas dentro del arco elctrico, es posible reencontrar la presencia de tal fase en
el metal depositado una vez soldado. Ya que la presencia de la fase sigma es muy perjudicial, se puede obtener su dilucin en la
austenita, o en su transformacin en ferrita delta, mediante tratamiento trmico del acero por encima de la temperatura mxima
de estabilidad de la fase.
El control de la ferrita en el depsito es verificado por ETC Elettrotermochimica para cada tipo de electrodo austentico y para
cada lote de produccin. Los valores analizados son certificados de acuerdo a Schaffler; De Long; Espy; WRC; Permascope.

Semi-basic electrode suitable for stabilized austenitic stainless steels AISI 321 and AISI 347.
The Nb+Ta presence in the weld metal is due to the Ti sublimation at the liquidus temperature
of the weld pool. The general properties are considerably improved at high temperatures.
Max service temperature +400C. Excellent weldability with a spatter free arc; self-releasing
slag combined with a very smooth bead appearance.

Elettrodo semi-basico per la saldatura degli acciai inossidabili austenitici stabilizzati AISI 321 e
AISI 347, solitamente stabilizzati al titanio. La presenza del Nb+Ta nel metallo d'apporto
giustificata dal fatto che il Ti, alla temperatura di fusione del bagno di saldatura, sublimerebbe,
compromettendo cos l'azione stabilizzante nel deposito. Si ha un miglioramento delle
propriet generali alle alte temperature. Max temperatura di esercizio +400C. Eccellente
saldabilit con un arco completamente privo di proiezioni; scoria facilmente asportabile e
cordone dall'aspetto piano e perfettamente raccordato.

ELECTRODES FOR WELDING CAST IRON
The welding of cast iron is widely used as a solution for fusion defects, repairing machines or restoring surfaces. This type of work
has become more and more important in the manufacture of structures with cast iron parts, or those where steel and cast iron
welded together.
Cast iron a 3 - 5% carbide content and small quantities of silicon and manganese, while phosphorous and, in particular, sulpher
are present as impurities. Nickel, molybdenum chrome or copper are generally added to cast iron to compose the alloy. Tn the
normal grey iron, carbide is found in the form of free graphite flakes, which greatly reduces its resistance to tensile stress.
Cast iron products with improved mechanical properties can be produced because of special metallurgic techniques. These are
obtained by transforrning the graphite flakes, which weaken the tensile resistance, into nodules. This type of cast iron (nodular,
spheroidal cast iron etc.) is more malleable and the tensile resistance is two or three times greater than the grey iron. Both this
type and the malleable one can be welded. As can be imagined, the malleable cast iron can be welded more easily than the rigid
cast iron which tends to favour the formation of flaws in the base metal. However, in terms of mechanical properties, the cast iron
welded joints are subject to less severe checks, given that they are mainly subjected to compressive stress.
Cast iron should be welded by suitable means and with suitable weld material. The greater part of the cast iron welds are carried
out with nickel containing electrodes welding with a heat imput as low as possible. This heat, when it is contained, reduces the
contraction and expansion stress which, because of the low degree of plasticity of the base material can easily give rise to faults.
Moreover, the area adjacent to the weld, under the influence of heat and fast cooling speeds, gives rise to a hard, fragile structure
which endangers the resistance of the joints. The depth of this area depends directly on the heat introduced.
Elements based on nickel are the most satisfactory in the welding of cast iron. This is due to their malleability and the grain
resistance as well as their ability to precipate the carbide, from the base metal, in the form of free graphite.

I
ELETTRODI PER LA SALDATURA DELLA GHISA
La saldatura della ghisa viene applicata su larga scala per ovviare a difetti di fusione, per la riparazione di macchine o per la
rigenerazione di superfici. Questo tipo di lavoro venuto assumendo una sempre maggiore importanza nella fabbricazione di
strutture con componenti in ghisa, o in ghisa e acciaio uniti tra loro per mezzo della saldatura.
Le ghise contengono carbonio al 3-5% e piccole quantit di silicio e manganese; il fosforo e specialmente lo zolfo sono presenti
come impurit. Le ghise legate possono presentare aggiunte di nichel, molibdeno, cromo o rame. Nella ghisa grigia normale il
carbonio presente sotto forma di fiocchi di grafite libera, la quale responsabile della scarsa resistenza sotto uno sforzo di
trazione.
Per mezzo di tecniche metallurgiche speciali possono venire prodotte delle ghise con propriet meccaniche migliorate. Il che si
ottiene trasformando i fiocchi di grafite, che indeboliscono la resistenza alla trazione, in noduli. Queste ghise (ghise nodulari,
sferoidale, etc.) sono pi duttili ed hanno una resistenza alla trazione da due a tre volte quella della ghisa grigia. Sia questa che
la duttile sono saldabili. Come si pu immaginare, la ghisa duttile pi facilmente saldabile della ghisa rigida, la quale ha pi
tendenza a favorire la formazione di cricche nel metallo base. Tuttavia, in terrnini di propriet meccaniche, i giunti saldati in ghisa
sono soggetti a controlli meno severi in questo senso, poich essi sono sottoposti principalmente a sollecitazioni di compressione.
La ghisa va saldata per mezzo di tecniche appropriate e con appositi materiali d'apporto. La maggior parte delle saldature in ghisa
vengono eseguire con elettrodi a base di nichel studiati in modo da apportare una bassa energia termica. Questa energia, quando
sia contenuta, riduce gli sforzi di espansione e di contrazione, i quali, a causa del basso grado di plasticit del materiale base,
possono facilmente dar luogo a cricche. Inoltre, la zona adiacente alla saldatura d luogo, sotto l'influenza del calore e dei
raffreddamenti veloci, a strutture dure e fragili, dannose alla resistenza dei giunti. La profondit di questa zona funzione diretta
del calore introdotto.
Gli elementi a base di nichel si sono dimostrati essere i pi soddisfacenti per la saldatura della ghisa. Questo data la loro duttilit
e resistenza del grano, nonch la loro capacit di precipitare in carbonio proveniente dal metallo base sotto forma di grafite libera.

D
ELEKTRODEN FR DAS SCHWEIEN VON GUTEILEN
Elektroden fr das Schweien von Guteilen finden groen Einsatz, um Defekte bei dem Gievorgang zu korrigieren, bei der
Reparatur von Maschinen oder fr Oberflchenverhrtung. Dieses Verfahren gewinnt immer mehr an Bedeutung bei dem Bau
von Strukturen und Guteilen, oder beim Verschweien von Gu mit Stahl.
Guteile enthalten 3-5% Kohlenstoff und geringe Mengen an Silizium und Mangan. Phosphor und besonders Schwefel sind nur
als Spuren enthalten. In legiertem Gu knnen Nickel, Molybdn, Chrom und Kupfer als Zusatzstoffe enthalten sein. Im normalen
grauen Graphit ist der Kohlenstoff in Form von freie Graphitkristallen vorhanden, durch die ein geringer Widerstand bei der
Ziehbelastung entsteht.
Durch spezielle Stahlverarbeitungstechniken entstehen Gsse mit besseren mechanischen Eigenschaften. Diese Verbesserung
erfolgt durch die Umwandlung der Graphitkristallen (durch die geringer Dehnbarkeit entsteht) in Kugeln. Diese Gsse (
Sphroguss usw.) sind elastischer und haben eine zwei- bis dreimal hhere Dehnbarkeit als der Grauguss. Diese Gsse sind
schweibar. Es ist eindeutig, da ein Gu mit groer Dehnbarkeit einfacher zu verschweien ist als ein harter Gu, bei dem die
Gefahr von Rissbildung im Grundmetall deutlich hher ist. Unter mechanischem Aspekt bentigen Guschweinhte keine
besonders aufmerksame Kontrolle, wenn sie vorwiegend Druckbelastungen ausgesetzt sind.
Guteile werden durch besondere Schweitechniken und mit geeignetem Zusatzwerkstoff verschweit. Das Verschweien von
Gu erfolgt vorallem mit Elektroden mit einem niedrigen Nickel-Gehalt, die nur eine geringe Wrmezufuhr erzeugen. Eine niedrige
Wrmezufuhr reduziert die Dehnungs- und Schrumpfungskapazitt und erhht die Gefahr der Rissbildung.
Durch Erwrmung und eine anschlieende, schnelle Abkhlung werden die Bereiche um die Schweinaht hart und brchig, was
die Bestndigkeit der Naht beeinflussen kann. Die Tiefenwirkung hngt von der Erwrmungsdauer ab.
Durch gute Dehnbarkeit und Krnungswiderstand, sowie durch Bildung von Kohlenstoff aus dem Grundmetall in Form von freiem
Graphit, erweisen sich Elektroden mit Nickel fr das Verschweien von Gueisen als besonders geeignet.

ELECTRODOS PARA LA SOLDADURA DE LA FUNDICIN
La soldadura de la fundicin es un procedimiento largamente utilizado para remediar algunos defectos de fusin, para la
reparacin de mquinas o para la restauracin de superficies. Este tipo de trabajos han ido adquiriendo cada vez ms, una gran
importancia en la fabricacin de estructuras con componentes de fundicin, o en la soldadura mixta entre fundicin y acero.
La fundicin contiene un carbono entre 3-5% y pequeas cantidades de silicio y manganeso; el fsforo y especialmente el azufre
son considerados impurezas. El nquel, molibdeno, cromo o cobre pueden ser utilizados como elementos aleantes. En la fundicin
gris, el carbono est presente bajo forma cristalizada, lo cual reduce la resistencia a la traccin.
Mediante tcnicas metalrgicas especiales se viene produciendo en la actualidad fundicin con propiedades mecnicas
mejoradas, consistente en transformar las perlas de grafito, que como ya sabemos reducen la resistencia a la traccin, en
ndulos. En la fundicin gris nodular, esferoidal, etc, obtenemos una mejor ductilidad y una resistencia a la traccin hasta tres
veces mayor que la de la fundicin gris y conseguimos adems una notable mejora en su soldabilidad, frente a los problemas de
la fundicin dura que tiene tendencia a producir fisuraciones en el metal base. Adems, en trminos de propiedades mecnicas,
las juntas soldadas, estn sujetas a controles menos severos, debido a que soportan principalmente solicitaciones de
compresin.
La fundicin viene siendo soldada mediante tcnicas apropiadas y consumibles especficos. La mayor parte de la soldadura se
realiza con electrodos de base nquel, desarrollados para conseguir el menor aporte trmico posible. Cuanto menor es esta
energa aportada, menores son los esfuerzos de expansin y de contraccin, los cuales, debido al bajo grado de plasticidad del
material de base, pueden fcilmente dar lugar a rotura. Tambin, la zona adyacente a la soldadura puede dar lugar, bajo la
influencia del calor y de un enfriamiento rpido, a estructuras duras y frgiles que pueden poner en peligro la resistencia de las
juntas. La extensin de esta zona va en funcin directa del calor aportado.
Los elementos con base nquel son los ms satisfactorios en la soldadura de la fundicin, dando una maleabilidad y gran
resistencia de grano que le confiere una buena capacidad en la precipitacin de carburos procedentes del metal de base bajo
forma de grafito liberado.

HARDFACING ELECTRODES
Hardfacing means applying an alloy which is corrosion proof to a metal surface in order to increase the resistance of components
subject to abrasion, knocks, heat and corrosion, or a combination of these.
The main purpose of a facing is to increase the working life of any given component in order to improve the service time. Moreover,
and this is often overlooked, production quantity and quality are concepts that are rarely directly dependent on each other.
The alloys used are generally classified according to their function, both in the construction of machine parts or facing. Generally,
the worn parts are restored, first by a soft facing which is less resistant to wear than the final one. This intermediate facing must
be such that is can not be easily deformed in order to constitute a good base for the final one. This latter is designed to provide
the maximum protection against a certain type of corrosion or a combination of corrosive agents.
The corrosion resistance of the facing depends on the carbide percentage (of chrome, tungsten, molybdenum, etc.) and the matrix
which, together with elements such as nickel, manganese, silicon and cobalt, form optimum alloys in particular working
conditions. Even though the alloy is often subject to abrasion, under some circumstances the alloy must also be highly resistant
to knocks. Whenever the dominant stress is due to wearing of metal against metal and severe impacts, austenitic manganese
steel should be used for the facing material.
Electrodes with a 13% manganese deposit are often used to restore steels having the same chemical composition, but they are
also used for facing on carbon steel.
It should be remembered that the facing properties indicated by the manufactured generally refer to the pure deposited metal .
Howerer, the hardness and crystalline structure can be considerably modified wen the deposit is fused with the base metal.
Usually, the effects are minimized after the third pass. The cooling time can also modify the structure, as well as the corrosion
resistance of certain allovs used for facing (e. g. self-tempering ones).
The choice of a facing must be made after having carefully analysed the working conditions. The main data relating to the
mechanical and physical properties of the base metal must be determined before the correct welding procedure can be
established.
Considerable time and material can be saved if the opportune evaluations are carried out first

I
ELETTRODI PER RIPORTI
Riporto significa applicare una lega resistente alla corrosione su una superficie metallica, al fine di aumentare la resistenza di
componenti soggetti ad abrasione, urto, calore e corrosione, o ad una combinazione di questi.
Lo scopo principale di un riporto quello di aumentare la durata di esercizio di un certo componente, in modo da limitare i tempi
morti. Inoltre, e questo viene spesso trascurato, la quantit e la qualit di produzione sono dei concetti che raramente sono
funzione diretta uno dell'altro.
Le leghe usate vengono generalmente classificate a seconda che la loro funzione sia di costruzione di parti di macchina o di
riporto. Secondo la pratica generale i componenti usurati vengono rigenerati, dapprima per mezzo di un riporto dolce e meno
resistente all'usura di quello finale. Tale riporto intermedio deve avere una buona resistenza alla deformazione in modo da
costituire un buon rapporto per il riporto finale. Quest'ultimo viene studiato per dare la massima resistenza ad un certo tipo di
corrosione o ad una combinazione di agenti corrosivi.
La resistenza alla corrosione del riporto dipende dalla percentuale di carburi (di cromo, tungsteno, molibdeno, etc.) e dalla matrice
che, facendo lega con elementi quali il nichel, il manganese, il silicio ed il cobalto, pu dare delle ottime prestazioni in particolari
condizioni di lavoro. Sebbene l'abrasione sia presente in molti casi, in talune condizioni si richiede una grande resistenza all'urto.
Qualora le sollecitazioni dominanti siano l'attrito metallo su metallo e dei forti urti, il materiale prescelto per i riporti l'acciaio
austenitico al manganese.
Sono spesso impiegati gli elettrodi con deposito al 13% di manganese per rigenerare gli acciai della stessa composizione chimica,
ma sono impiegati per riporti su acciai al carbonio.
E' buona norma ricordare che la propriet del riporto indicate dal fabbricante, generalmente sono relative al metallo puro
depositato. Tuttavia, la durezza e la struttura cristallina possono venire notevolmente modificate dalla diluizione del deposito con
il metallo base. Di regola, gli effetti vengono minimizzati dopo la terza passata. Anche la velocit di raffreddamento pu modificare
la struttura, nonch la resistenza alla corrosione di certe leghe per riporti (ad es. autotempranti).
La scelta di un riporto dev'essere fatta dopo un'attenta analisi delle condizioni di lavoro. Si dovrebbero rilevare i dati principali
relativi alle propriet meccaniche e fisiche del metallo base e stabilire di conseguenza una corretta procedura di saldatura.
Opportune valutazioni in questo senso si traducono in notevoli risparmi di tempo e di materiale.

D
ELEKTRODEN FR DEN OBERFLCHENAUFTRAG
Unter Oberflchenauftrag versteht man das Auftragen einer korrosionsbestndigen Legierung auf eine Metalloberflche, um
Bauteile widerstandsfhiger gegen Abrieb, Ste, Wrme und Korrosion, oder ein Zusammenspiel dieser Belastungen, zu
machen.
Ziel eines Oberflchenauftrages ist eine lngere Betriebsdauer des Bauteils und die Reduzierung der Totzeit. Nur selten lassen
sich Produktionsquantitt und -qualitt miteinander vereinbaren.
Die Legierung wird je nach ihrem Verwendungszweck gewhlt: fr die Erstellung von Maschinen-Bauteilen oder fr den
Oberflchenauftrag. Normalerweise werden verschleite Bauteile erst leicht verstrkt und bekommen erst spter einen
Oberflchenauftrag. Die erste Verstrkung sollte unbedingt formbestndig sein, um eine gute Grundlage fr den endgltigen
Oberflchenauftrag zu bilden. Die Legierung fr den Oberflchenauftrag wird fr aximale Widerstandsfhigkeit gegen eine
bestimmte Art von Korrosion oder eine Kombination von Korrosionsfaktoren erstellt.
Die Widerstandsfhigkeit des Schweigutes gegen Korrosion hngt vom Anteil der Karbide (Chrom, Tungsten, Molybdn etc.),
bzw. von der Matrize ab, durch den in Verbindung mit Nickel, Mangan, Silizium und Kobalt, optimale Leistungen unter besonders
schwierigen Bedingungen mglich sind. Abriebfaktoren sind zwar ein hufiges Problem, aber auch der Einflu von
Stoeinwirkung sollte nicht unterschtzt werden. Fr Maschinenbauteile, die einem Verschlei durch aneinander reibende
Metallteile oder einer starken Stoeinwirkung ausgesetzt sind, beweist sich der austenitische Mangan-Stahl als das ideale
Schweigut.
Oft werden Elektroden mit 13% Mangan fr die Regenerierung von Stahl mit gleicher chemischen Zusammensetzung verwendet;
sie werden aber auch fr den Auftrag auf unlegierten Stahl verwendet.
Es mu bedacht werden, da sich der Hersteller bei den Angaben zum Schweigut , normalerweise auf das reine Metall bezieht.
Die Festigkeit und das Kristallingefge knnen nennenswert durch eine Verdnnung des Schweigutes mit dem Grundstoff
modifiziert werden. Die Auswirkungen werden in der Regel nach dem dritten Durchzug minimiert. Auch die Khlzeit kann zur
Vernderung der Struktur beitragen, sowie den Korrosionswiderstand bestimmter Legierungen fr das Schweigut (z.B.
selbsthrtende) beeinflussen.
Die Materialauswahl fr das Schweigut mu nach dem jeweiligen Verwendungszweck erfolgen. Es sollten die Grundwerte
bezglich der mechanischen und physischen Eigenschaften des Basismetalls bercksichtigt und eine entsprechende Schweiart
festgelegt werden.
Eine korrekten Bewertung bringt Zeit- und Materialersparnis.

E
ELECTRODOS PARA RECARGUE
Recargue significa aplicar una aleacin resistente a la corrosin y al desgaste sobre una superficie metlica, a fin de aumentar
la resistencia de componentes sujetos a abrasin, golpe, calor y corrosin, o una combinacin de estos.
Lo que perseguimos principalmente en un recargue, es aumentar la duracin de ciertos componentes cuando estn en servicio
eliminando los tiempos muertos. Adems, hay que tener en cuenta que la cantidad y la calidad de produccin, son dos conceptos
que raramente van en funcin el uno del otro.
La aleacin usada vendr generalmente clasificada segn si la funcin es construir o reparar una mquina. Como prctica
general, los elementos desgastados sern regenerados, primeramente por un recargue dulce y menos resistente al desgaste que
la aportacin final. Este recargue intermedio (tampn) deber tener una buena resistencia a la deformacin de manera que sirva
de colchn al recargue final. Siendo este ltimo el estudiado para cada tipo de corrosin o combinacin de agentes corrosivos.
La resistencia a la corrosin y al desgaste del recargue depende del tanto por ciento de carburos (de cromo, tungsteno,
molibdeno, etc) y de la matriz que, haciendo aleacin con elementos como el nquel, el manganeso, el silicio y el cobalto,
consiguen las mejores prestaciones segn las particulares condiciones de cada trabajo. Si bien la abrasin est presente en casi
todos los casos, tambin se requiere en muchos casos una resistencia al impacto. En el caso de grandes solicitaciones en
fricciones de metal contra metal y choques importantes, el consumible seleccionado ser del tipo austentico al manganeso.
Los electrodos con 13% manganeso, son utilizados para la restauracin de los aceros con similar composicin qumica y aceros
al carbono en general.
Es conveniente indicar que los datos aportados por el fabricante sobre el recargue, siempre se refieren al metal puro depositado.
La dureza y la estructura cristalina pueden variar segn el grado de dilucin del material depositado con el de base. Como norma,
el material puro depositado se consigue a partir de la tercera pasada. La velocidad de enfriamiento puede modificar tambin la
estructura, as como la resistencia a la corrosin y desgaste de ciertas aleaciones usadas para el recargue (ej. aceros
autotemplantes).
La ejecucin del recargue debe hacerse previo un atento anlisis de las condiciones de trabajo.

NEW ETC VACUUM PACKING
ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l.
The highest requirements for Welding applications require weld deposits with extremely low levels of diffusible hydrogen, with the
aim of ensuring defects-free weld metal and satisfactory mechanical integrity at low temperatures in low alloyed and non-alloyed
ferritic steels.
In order to minimise the hydrogen which is derived mostly from the residual moisture of the electrode coating, it is necessary to
establish optimum procedures and equipment for the storage, re-conditioning and handling of welding electrodes.
ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l., always mindful of clients' quality requirements, have carried out a project into vacuum packing
which can be applied to basic low hydrogen, non-alloyed and low/high alloyed electrodes.
This packing is consisting of a multilayers flexible rolled section which is resistant to handling abuse and which forms a barrier
against moisture. The electrodes are packed inside the container to which a total vacuum is applied. Once the vacuum operation
has been carried out, the rolled section is thermo-sealed so that the vacuum effect is complete to the end of the wrapper thus
enabling the container to be easily opened and also to provide a visual effect if the vacuum pack has been damaged.
This packing system has the following advantages:
- The guarantee of being able to use eletrodes at the welding site with the residual moisture level of the electrode coating equal
to that at the moment of packing at the production plant. At the moment of opening undamaged packing, guarantees a level of
diffusible hydrogen in the deposited metal, lower or equal to the minimum values indicated on the packing itself.
- The possibility of continuously verifying that the seal of the container is unbroken.
- The possibility of eliminating the need for equipment and procedures for the optimum storage and re-conditioning of electrodes,
which represents an unquestionable and definitive saving for the end-user, with a minimum increase in the product cost.
- A greater protection against damage due to transport and handling.

ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l.
sempre pi sentita l'esigenza, da parte della clientela pi sofisticata, di ottenere depositi di saldatura con valori di idrogeno
diffusibile estremamente bassi al fine di garantire caratteristiche meccaniche soddisfacenti a bassa temperatura negli acciai non
legati e debolmente legati.
Al fine di minimizzare l'azione dell'idrogeno, proveniente in massima parte dall'umidit residua del rivestimento degli elettrodi,
necessario predisporre procedure ed attrezzature per la conservazione, il ricondizionamento e la manipolazione degli elettrodi
stessi.
La ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l., attenta e sensibile alle richieste qualitative della clientela, ha realizzato un progetto di
imballaggio sotto vuoto applicabile ugli elettrodi basici non legati e debolmente legati.
Tale imballaggio viene realizzato utilizzando un laminato flessibile multistrato, resistente an'azione meccanica, costituente una
barriera di protezione totale contro l'umidit. Gli elettrodi vengono posti all'interno di tale protezione nella quale viene praticato
un vuoto estremamente spinto. Una volta realizzato il vuoto il laminato viene termosaldato al fine di garantirne l'effetto fino ad
apertura dell'involucro per l'utilizzo degli elettrodi.
Tale sistema di imballaggio offre i seguenti vantaggi:
- La garanzia di poter disporre sul posto di saldatura di elettrodi con percentuale di umidit residua del rivestimenlv puri a quella
che essi avevano all 'epoca dell 'imballaggio presso lo stabilimento di produzione. La ETC garantisce, all'atto dell'apertura, il
tenore di idrogeno diffusibile, inferiore o uguale ai valori indicati sulla confezione stessa.
- La possibilit di poter verificare in ogni momento la perfetta tenuta dell'involucro.
- La possibilit di eliminare attrezzature e procedure per la conservazione ed il ricondizionamento degli elettrodi, ci che
rappresenta una indiscutibile e quantificabile economia per l'utilizzatore, a fronte di un limitato incremento del costo
dell'imballaggio.
- Una maggiore protezione contro l'azione meccanica dovuta al trasporto ed alla manipolazione.

bestimmter Arbeitsablufe und -gerte fr die Konservierung, die Aufbereitung und die Handhabung der Elektroden.
Um den Bedrfnissen der Kundschaft zu entsprechen hat die ETC Elettrotermochimica Srl eine Vakuumverpackung fr legierte
oder leicht legierte, basische Elektroden geschaffen.
Fr diese Verpackung wird ein flexibler Schichtstoff verwendet, der gegen mechanische Einflsse resistent ist und einen
absoluten Schutz gegen Feuchtigkeit bildet. Die Elektroden befinden sich in einer kantenverschweiten Vakuum-Schutzhlle, die
einen einwandfreien Zustand bis zum Gebrauch der Elektroden garantiert.
Diese Verpackungsart bietet folgende Vorteile:
- Die Garantie einer Elektrode mit einem, unvernderten Feuchtigkeitsgehalt in der Ummantelung. Die ETC garantiert, bis zum
ffnen der Packung, den auf der Konfektion angegebenen (oder geringeren) diffusiblen Wasserstoffgehalt.
- Die absolute Dichtheit der Vakuum-Verpackung kann zu jeder Zeit berprft werden.
- Gerte und Arbeitsvorgnge, die bisher fr die Aufbereitung der Elektrode notwendig waren, entfallen. Die Kosten fr die
bisherige Aufbereitung sind entschieden hher, als der geringe Aufpreis fr die Vakuumverpackung.
- Ein guter Schutz gegen eventuelle mechanische Einflsse whrend des Transportes oder der Handhabung.

E
NUEVO EMBALAJE AL VACIO ETC
ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l.
Los altos requisitos en aplicaciones para la soldadura requieren un material depositado con valores extremadamente bajos de
hidrgeno difusible a fin de garantizar unas caractersticas mecnicas satisfactorias a baja temperatura en los aceros no aleados
y en los dbilmente aleados.
A fin de minimizar la accin del hidrgeno, que proviene principalmente de la humedad residual en el recubrimiento de los
electrodos, es necesario preparar procedimientos y mtodos para la conservacin., reacondicionamiento y manipulacin de los
mismos electrodos.
ETC Elettrotermochimica s.r.l. pendiente y sensible ante la demanda de calidad de sus clientes, ha realizado un proyecto de
preparacin de embalajes al vaco aplicables a los electrodos bsicos no aleados y a los dbilmente aleados.
Este embalaje se realiza utilizando un laminado flexible multiestrato, resistente a la accin mecnica, consistente en una barrera
de proteccin total contra la humedad. Los electrodos se disponen en el interior de esta proteccin a la que se le practica un
vaco extremadamente severo. Una vez realizado este vaco se termosuelda el laminado con el objeto de garantizar este efecto
hasta la apertura del paquete para la utilizacin de los electrodos.
Este sistema de embalaje ofrece las siguientes ventajas:
- La garanta de poder disponer en el puesto de soldadura de electrodos con un porcentaje de humedad residual de su
revestimiento equivalente a la del momento de su embalaje en fbrica. ETC garantiza, que en el momento de su apertura, el
contenido de hidrgeno difusible, ser inferior o igual a los valores impresos sobre el mismo paquete.
- La posibilidad de poder verificar en todo momento el perfecto estado del envoltorio.
- La posibilidad de eliminar los equipos y procesos para la conservacin y reacondicionamiento de los electrodos, lo que
representa una indiscutible y cuantificable economa para el usuario, frente a un limitado incremento en el coste del embalaje.
- Una mejor proteccin contra la accin mecnica debida al transporte y su manipulacin.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STORAGE AND REDRYING
OF ETC PH LOW HYDROGEN COATED ELECTRODES
Since basic type electrode coatings are more or less sensitive to moisture absorption, care must be taken during storage and
handling to prevent excessive moisture absorption resulting in an unacceptable hydrogen content in the weld metal.
STORAGE
The room in which the electrodes are stored shall have:
- a minimum temperature of 15C:
- a relative humidity of maximum 50%.
HOLDING OVEN
The holding oven is used for intermediate storage before electrode distribution to the welders.
Electrodes stored in the holding oven are electrodes which:
- are considered in good condition and transferred directly from storage after unpacking;
- have been removed from their hermetically sealed containers (these electrodes need not be redried);
- have been redried.
Conditions of the holding oven shall be:
a) Tempetature: 90-150C;
b) Total period of storage: max. 6 weeks.
REDRYING
Redrying of the electrodes before use is necessary where it is suspected thet they will not meet the application required for the
weld metal hydrogen content (usually less than 10 ml H2 or 5 ml H2 per 100 g of weld deposit).
Redrying data of each type of ETC PH electrodes are described in this catalogue.
PRECAUTION AT THE SITE
At the site electrodes must be held in electrically heated quivers having a temperature of min. 70 C.
The remaining electrodes at the end of the working day must be returned to the holding oven. The holding period of electrodes in
these quivers should not exceed 8 hrs.
VACUUM PACKED ELECTRODES
These electrodes can also be stored in different conditions from standard electrodes requirements, provided the boxes are
unbroken.
From the time of opening pay attention to the above mentioned recommendations or to those written on the boxes.

I
CONDIZIONI PER LA CONSERVAZIONE ED IL RICONDIZIONAMENTO
DEGLI ELETTRODI RIVESTIVI ETC PH
Poich il rivestimento degli elettrodi, soprattutto per il tipo basico, pi o meno sensibile al riassorbimento di umidit, si dovr
porre particolare cura durante la conservazione e manipolazione allo scopo di evitare un eccessivo riassorbimento di umidit, il
quale avrebbe come conseguenza un contenuto di idrogeno inaccettabile nel deposito di saldatura.
CONSERVAZIONE
L'ambiente nel quale gli elettrodi vengono immagazzinati dovr avere:
- temperatura minima di 15C;
- umidit relativa massima del 50%.
FORNI DI MANTENIMENTO
I forni di mantenimento vengono usati per una conservazione intermedia prima della distribuzione degli elettrodi ai saldatori.
Gli elettrodi posti nei forni di mantenimento sono elettrodi che:
- sono considerati in buone condizioni e trasferiti direttamente dal magazzino dopo sballaggio;
- sono stati tolti dai loro contenitori sigillati (tali elettrodi non hanno bisogno di essere ricondizionati);
- sono stati ricondizionati.
I parametri dei forni di mantenimento dovranno essere:
a) temperatura: 90C -150C;
b) durata totale di mantenimento: max 6 settimane.
RICONDIZIONAMENTO
Il ricondizionamento degli elettrodi prima dell'uso necessario qualora vi sia il sospetto che essi non soddisfino i requisiti di
contenuto di idrogeno nel deposito di saldatura (normalmente inferiore a 10 ml di H2 o 5 ml di H2 per 100 gr di metallo depositato).
I parametri per il ricondizionamento sono descritti all'interno di questo catalogo per ogni tipo di elettrodo ETC PH.
PRECAUZIONI SUL POSTO DI SALDATURA
Sul posto di saldatura gli elettrodi devono essere mantenuti in stufette con temperature min. di 70C, per un max 8 ore.
Gli elettrodi rimanenti alla fine della giornata lavorativa devono essere riportati nelforno di mantenimento.
ELETTRODI IN IMBALLO VP.
Tali elettrodi possono essere stoccati in condizioni al di fuori di quanto previsto per gli standard, purch mantenuti nelle confezioni
integre.
Dal momento dell'apertura della confezione valgono le raccomandazioni di cui sopra e/o quelle riportate sulla confezione stessa.

D
VORSCHRIFTEN FR DIE AUFBEWAHRUNG UND DIE AUFBEREITUNG
DER ELEKTRODEN MIT ETC PH UMMANTELUNG
Da besonders die Ummantelung der basischen Elektroden empfindlich auf Feuchtigkeit reagiert, mu darauf geachtet werden,
da whrend der Lagerung oder der Handhabung eine bermige Feuchtigkeitsaufnahme vermieden wird. Ein zu hoher
Feuchtigkeitsgehalt fhrt zu einem zu hohen Gehalt an Wasserstoff im Schweigut.
LAGERUNG
Folgende Lagervoraussetzungen sollten gegeben sein:
- Mindesttemperatur von 15C;
- Relative Feuchtigkeit max. 50%
LAGERUNG IN FEN
Die Lagerung im fen ist eine Zwischenlagerung, bevor die Elektroden an die Schweier ausgegeben werden.
FOLGENDE ELEKTRODEN WERDEN IN FEN GELAGERT:
- Elektroden in einwandfreiem Zustand und die sofort nach der Entfernung der Verpackung im Ofen gelagert werden.
- Elektroden direkt aus einer verschweiten Packung ( Aufbereitung nicht erforderlich)
- aufbereitete Elektroden.
Der Ofen mu folgende Voraussetzungen aufweisen:
a) Temperatur: 90C - 150C
b) Dauer der Aufbewahrung: max. 6 Wochen
AUFBEREITUNG
Eine Aufbereitung vor dem Einsatz der Elektrode wird notwendig, wenn der Verdacht besteht, da der Wasserstoffgehalt in dem
Schweigut nicht den erforderlichen Werten entspricht. (normalerweise unter 10 ml H2 o 5 ml H2 pro 100gr. Schweigut.
Die Angaben fr die Aufbereitung sind in diesem Katalog fr jede ETC PH-Elektrode beschrieben.
VORSICHTSMANAHMEN AM SCHWEIORT
Die Elektroden mssen am Schweiort in kleinen fchen bei einer Mindesttemperatur von 70C und fr maximal 8 Stunden
aufbewahrt werden.
Die nicht gebrauchten Elektroden mssen am Ende Arbeitstages wieder in den Aufbereitungsofen zurckgelegt werden.
ELEKTRODEN IN DER VAKUUMVERPACKUNG
Elektroden in der Vakuumverpackung bedrfen keiner besonderen Lagervoraussetzung. Die Vakuumverpackung darf jedoch nicht
beschdigt sein.
Nach ffnen der Vakuumverpackung gelten die aufgedruckten Hinweise und/oder die Anweisungen auf der Verpackung.

GB
ETC TUBOLAR FLUX CORED WIRES
The flux cored wires, manufactured by ETC Elettrotermochimica, are obtained with a particular patented process and therefore
they distinguish themselves from all the other flux cored wires. The wire section is tubular. The wire is originated from the bending
and the following welding of a metallic strip, then filled up with flux and drawn. In this way the wire is waterproof. The last
operation is the coppering. The waterproof wire inhibits completely the pick-up of humidity from the surrounding area so that the
welded metal will have an extremely low content of diffusible hydrogen: 1-3 ml/100 gr. The coppering confers a good protection to
the wire against oxidation and assures firmly a perfect electric contact between the feeding pipe and the wire: this leads to a
longer life of the feeding pipe and a reduction of losses.

I
ETC FILI ANIMATI TUBOLARI
I fili animati prodotti da ETC Elettrotermochimica sono ottenuti con un particolare procedimento brevettato e per questo si
distinguono da tutti gli altri fili animati. La sezione del filo tubolare. Il filo viene originato dalla piegatura e successiva saldatura
di un nastro metallico, poi viene riempito di flusso e quindi trafilato. In questo modo costituita la tenuta stagna del filo. L'ultima
operazione quella di ramatura. La tenuta stagna del filo inibisce completamente l'ingresso dell'umidit da parte dell'ambiente
esterno: il metallo depositato si presenter cos con un contenuto di idrogeno diffusibile estremamente basso: 1-3 ml/100 gr. La
ramatura conferisce al filo un'ottima protezione contro l'ossidazione e garantisce costantemente un perfetto contatto elettrico tra
tubetto portacorrente e filo stesso: ci porta ad una durata maggiore del tubetto porta corrente e ad una diminuzione delle perdite.

D
ETC FLLDRAHT
Der Flldraht der ETC-Elettrotermochimica wird durch ein patentiertes Verfahren hergestellt und unterscheidet sich dadurch von
anderen Flldrahtsorten.
Er entsteht durch Biegung und anschlieendes Verschweien eines Metallbandes. Dieses geschweite Rohr wird mit
Schweipulver ausgefllt und gezogen. Durch dieses Verfahren wird absolute Dichte des Drahtes erreicht. Als letzter Vorgang
erfolgt die Verkupferung.
Durch die absolute Dichte des Drahtes wird eine sptere Feuchtigkeitsaufnahme verhindert; das Schweigut enthlt daher einen
sehr niedrigen Gehalt an diffusiblem Wasserstoff: 1-3 ml/100 gr. Die Verkupferung schtzt den Draht vor Oxydation und garantiert
einen konstanten elektrischen Kontakt zwischen Lichtbogen und Draht. Dies fhrt zu einer lngeren Lebensdauer des
Kontaktrohres und reduziert Spritzer.

E
ETC HILOS TUBULARES
Los hilos tubulares producidos por ETC Elettrotermochimica se consiguen a partir de un peculiar procedimiento patentado que los
distingue respecto de otros hilos tubulares. La seccin del hilo es tubular, consiguindolo mediante el plegado y soldadura
continua de una pletina metlica, que es rellenada con flux y posteriormente trefilada hasta el dimetro deseado. De este modo
se obtiene un hilo estanco que posteriormente pasa a la fase final de cobrizado. La total estanqueidad del hilo inhibe
completamente el paso de la humedad del ambiente externo, por lo tanto, el material depositado, presentar unos niveles de
hidrgeno difusible extremadamente bajos: 1-3 ml/100 gr. El cobreado le confiere al hilo una ptima proteccin contra la oxidacin
y garantiza un constante y perfecto contacto elctrico entre el tubo portacorriente de la antorcha y el propio hilo: esto aporta una
mayor duracin del tubo portacorrientes y una disminucin de las prdidas.

edge wetting, finely rippled welds, notch-free weld transition, little oxide formation on the
weld surface - multipass welding possible without cleaning between runs. Because of the
easily controllable weld profile, this wire is well suited for gap bridging and positional welding.

Easily controllable weld profile, excellent welding properties in all positions. This allows
all-position welding with high currents, consequently giving a high deposition rate. Partly and
fully mechanised circumferential pipe welding is a particular strengh of this wire. When
carrying out orbital welding the best results are to be achieved in the 6 oclock position with
wire dia. 1.2-1.4 mm. Low spatter losses, good slag detatchability, fine bead appearance,
porosity-free welds, notch-free interface.

The flux cored wire welding procedure in protective atmosphere is in its field one of the most technologically advanced methods
of welding.
The common request of increasing productivity together with a steady improvement of quality, causes the welding consumables
fabricators to carry out a constant research of new procedures.
With a view to increasing the properties of this method we have launched a new series of flux cored wires which have been
manufactured with a strip technologic and are suitable for claddings and shipyard and offshore applications.
The strip method allows a very good and balanced filling up, so that to have the possibility to obtain weld deposits with excellent
mechanical properties, easy operative all-position weldability and high deposition rates.

I
FILI ANIMATI ETC A PIATTINA
Il procedimento di saldatura mediante filo animato in atmosfera protettiva costituisce uno dei sistemi tecnologicamente pi
avanzati nel campo della saldatura.
La richiesta generale circa la possibilit di realizzare un aumento della produttivit unitamente al costante miglioramento della
qualit, fa si che anche i fabbricanti di prodotti per la saldatura siano costantemente impegnati nella ricerca di nuovi procedimenti.
Nellintento di accrescere le caratteristiche del metodo in questione stata messa a punto una nuova serie di fili animati prodotti
con tecnologia a piattina per la saldatura e ricarica di acciai non legati, debolmente legati, inox, riporti e per applicazioni in
cantieristica ed offshore.
Il metodo a piattina consente un ottimale e bilanciato riempimento dando la possibilit di ottenere depositi con eccezionali
caratteristiche meccaniche, unendo una facile saldabilit operativa in tutte le posizioni ed alti tassi di deposito.

Aus diesem Grund steht dieses Verfahren in der Maschinenbauindustrie an erster Stelle, bei stndig wachsender Nachfrage. Der
Wunsch nach Produktionserhhung und gleichzeitig steigender Qualitt, fhrt auch bei den Produzenten von Schweizustzen
zur Entwicklung stndig neuer Schweiverfahren.
Um die Schweieigenschaften bei diesem Verfahren zu verbessern, wurde eine Reihe neuer Massivdrhte mit
Flachdrahttechnologie, fr das Schweien und Auftragschweien von unlegiertem, schwach legiertem und rostfreien Bausthlen
erstellt, sowie fr das Schweien und die Oberflchenverhrtung im Baustellen- und Offshore-Bereich. Die Flachdrahtmethode
gestattet ein optimales und gleichmiges Auffllen mit einem Schweigut von ausgezeichneten mechanischen Eigenschaften.

ETC TIG RODS
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, also known as TIG Welding, Argon - Arc Welding and Tungsten Arc Welding, is an electric arc welding
process which fuses together the parts to be welded by heating them with an arc between a non consumable tungsten electrode
and the work. Filler may or may not be used. Shielding is obtained from an inert gas or an inert gas mixture. The process is normally
applied manually and is capable of welding steels and nonferrous metal in all positions. The process is commonly used on thin
metals and for the root and hot pass on tubing and pipe. ETC Elettrotermochimica has been working in this field for many years
and has a full range of TIG rods suitable to weld Carbon, low alloy and stainless steels, Nickel alloys, CuNi and NiCu alloys and
Aluminium.

ETC BARRETTE TIG
Il procedimento di saldatura Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, conosciuto anche come saldatura TIG, saldatura Argon o saldatura
Tungsten Arc, un procedimento che sfrutta il calore provocato dall'arco elettrico per fondere assieme due materiali conduttori.
L'arco elettrico scocca tra un elettrodo in tungsteno ed il materiale base. La saldatura pu essere fatta con o senza materiale
d'apporto. Il gas di protezione dato da una miscela di gas inerti. un procedimento di saldatura manuale e consente di saldare
in tutte le posizioni materiali ferrosi e non ferrosi. Principalmente utilizzato per la saldatura in prima passata dove necessaria la
massima garanzia in termini di penetrazione. La ETC Elettrotermochimica da anni presente in questo settore con una completa
gamma di barrette per la saldatura di acciai al carbonio, debolmente legati, inox, leghe al nichel, cupro nichel, nichel - cupro ed
alluminio.
