E7018 Hobart 418 Carbon Steel Electrode


SKU: HOBS119932-089

Hobart 418 gives you all the flexibility you need in a general-purpose, low-hydrogen, mild steel electrode. It conforms to the requirements of AWS A5.1, E7018. It also has good out-of-position welding capabilities and provides an X-ray quality deposit. And this unique electrode is ideal for tacking prior to finish welding with Fabshield self-shielded, tubular wire. That's because the construction of the Hobart 418 allows removal of all the slag from the self-shielded wire.
