DESCRIPTION
ESAB KV4 is a basic coated all position electrode used for welding of creep resistant,
Cr-Mo bearing steel. Deposited metal is highly resistant to heat and corrosion. This
electrode is highly suited for welding steel having 4 to 6% Chromium and 0.5%
Molybdenum. The design of the slag system, good arc characteristics, stable arc in
all positions, minimum spatter level and smooth weld bead appeal to the welder.
Weld deposit is of radiographic quality.

DESCRIPTION
ESAB KV7 is basic coated all position electrode for welding of creep - resistant
steels alloyed with 9Cr-1Mo. The weldmetal obtained is ductile and resistant to impact.
The weldmetal is highly resistant to corrosion and hydrogen attack at high
temperatures. The arc and current carrying characteristics, minimum spatter and
smoke level and stable arc in all positions appeal to the welder. The weldmetal is of
radiographic quality and appearance is smooth and even.

WELDING CURRENT: DC+

WELDING CURRENT: DC+

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
ESAB KV4 finds extensive use in the chemical and petrochemical industries, oil
industries where it has to resist corrosion and hydrogen attack at high temperatures.
It is also used for welding parts of aircraft made out of SAE 4130 steels, heat treatable
steels etc. Also suitable for welding 5% chromium steel castings for use at elevated
temperatures.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
ESAB KV7 is intended for welding of steels with similar composition. These steels
are often found in oil refineries, chemical and petrochemical industries, power plants
where it has to resist corrosion and hydrogen attack at high temperatures.
