Welding Steel

Welding procedures require consistent chemical and mechanical properties between the weld and the base metal. Our low and medium alloyed special welding consumables deliver just that, ensuring the integrity of your weld, every time.

Compliant with a variety of national and international specifications, our wide range of welding wire rod is suitable for processing into welding electrodes, MIG / MAG (gas-shielded metal arc) electrodes and submerged arc welding wires.

Stable and precise welding results are reliant on both the tight and accurate control of the chemical composition and the limiting of residual elements.

Additional processing for ease of drawability

Our wire rod can be further processed by both pickling and mechanical descaling for the optimum surface finish. Usually supplied in the as-rolled condition, our welding wire rod has good drawability, achieved through optimal cooling in the rolling mill. The more alloyed grades can be delivered in the annealed condition to ensure good drawability.
