WHY CHOOSE BARRACUDA GOLD ELECTRODES: The Barracuda ‘Gold’ underwater welding electrode has been designed and formulated to produce the highest quality weld-metal possible, offering excellent ductility, toughness and strength properties. The electrode, which has added nickel, offers significant improvements in mechanical/metallurgical properties to standard C/Mn (mild-steel) electrodes. The electrodes are manufactured under strict quality control methods and procedures (ISO 9000) to ensure the highest, repeatable quality at all times. For an electrode to produce high quality welds underwater, attention to the waterproofing is of paramount importance to ensure moisture is prevented from penetrating the flux coating, while at the same time, allowing the electrode to burn “fry” without undue interference to the arc, or allowing contamination to transferred to weld-metal. The Barracuda Gold electrode is guaranteed not to flake, blister even under the harshest of environments and it also offers the maximum electrical protection for the diver. Electrodes may be submerged up to a 90 minute period without any undue interference or loss of performance, although we always recommend electrodes should be used within a 30-45 minute period, where possible. Although no standard/specification exists for underwater welding electrodes, the nearest equivalent may be taken from BSEN ISO 499: 1995 for covered welding electrodes. The nearest code being E4221NiRR (AWS E7014). Barracuda Gold electrodes exceed the specification criteria as stated under BSEN ISO 15618-1:2002 and AWS D3.6M-99 for underwater class ‘B’ welds. PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTIC: The electrode is designed to be used in all positions, using touch welding techniques and offers a friendly, soft, controllable arc characteristic, making welding very easy for both experienced and inexperienced divers alike. The electrode also has a graphite tip for easy striking. For more detailed information and additional technical/operations features, see separate data sheet. TECHNICAL SUPPORT:
