ESAB Welding & Cutting Products improved its OK Flux 10.99, an agglomerated neutral basic flux designed for submerged arc welding in heavy industrial environments. The enhanced formula of the flux works in combination with selected austenitic and nickel-based wires, performs equally well with either AC or DC current, and provides significantly improved slag release. Weldability in 1G and 2G positions is very smooth with much easier detaching slag. The end result is a very clean bead shape and appearance with good wetting. As a neutral flux, it does not contribute any alloying elements to the weld metal.
