can weld stainless steel anywhere that you can arc weld without the need for an oxyacetylene
torch, hoses, regulators, or expensive and heavy gas bottles!
These incredibly versatile ZENA®
NO-Gas Stainless to Stainless to All Arc Welding Rods let you weld all types of stainless
steel creating a super strong 312 Alloy, 128,000 psi weld, highly resistant to cracking
or breaking using only your arc welder!
for welding ALL steels. This rod is the absolute ultimate computer engineered, high
alloy electrode for welding every known grade of steel using every know stick electrode
is the first truly AC-DC mineral-coated high alloy rod that can be used by anyone
regardless of prior welding experience. The key is an arc so ionized that you cannot
short it out!
Because of the exceptional strength
and crack resistance of welds made with these rods, they are ideal for repairing
tools, dies, spring steel, and for joining all types of dissimilar metal combinations
-- except for Aluminum and Copper alloys. These rods are also recommended for repairing
worn parts and an an underlay for hard-facing.
You can also use these special
stainless steel welding rods for:
- joining stainless steel to other
types of steel (including spring steel), OR
- joining all types of dissimilar
steels (including spring steel), OR
- welding spring steel, OR
increasing corrosion resistance, OR
produce exceptionally strong, low distortion welds at low welding temperatures.
Highly versatile stainless steel
arc welding rods with an engineered deposit chemistry that has the perfect ratio
of metallics to offer superior crack resistance and to provide superior performance
when joining dissimilar steels.
High chromium, nickel alloy for
use with AC or DC reverse polarity in all positions. Designed to produce weld deposits
of exceptional strength -- tensile strength 128,000 PSI (almost twice that of average
rod). Excellent resistance to corrosion, most chemicals, fertilizers, sulfur, and
salts. This alloy maintains its strength and corrosion resistance at high and low
temperatures. A balanced metallurgical structure produces high crack resistance under
the toughest welding conditions and service applications. This material has good
wear resistance, overlays take a high polish and it is one of the best materials
for welding dissimilar metals -- including spring steel. It welds as very low amperages,
reducing distortion, base metal dilution and its low heat input keeps thermal stresses
in welded joints at a minimum.
A special flux formulation eliminates
slag interference in horizontal fillets and which produces slag designed to turn
to powder -- a feature which makes these electrodes also ideal for stud pull applications.

- Excellent wear resistance.
- Excellent crack resistance.
- Exceptional strength.
- Clean weld area to be free of
rust, grease, paint, or other materials which can cause weld contamination. It IS
NOT necessary to grind flame cut edges.
- Adjust amperage to recommended
range for electrode size. .
- Tilt electrode 15 degrees in
the direction of travel.
- Maintain a short arc length
and use stringer beads.
- For rapid filleting, raise amperage
slightly and drag weld inclining the electrode 45 degrees in the direction of travel.
- Back whip craters and remove
slag between passes.
- A 90 degree V-joint should be
used when joining heavy sections.
- Upon cooling, slag can easily
be removed by light chipping and brushing.
- Use Flat, Horizontal, Vertical
Up, and Overhead Positions.
- Horizontal fillet
welds in all grades of construction steels
- Welding every know
grade of tool steel including pre-hardened types
- Joining abrasion
resistant steels, Hadfield and other austenitic manganese steels
- Joining heat and
corrosion resisting steels
- Mending specialized
iron-base castings with high carbon contents
- Repairing and fabricating
tools and dies of all types
