Cleveland, Ohio -- Lincoln Electric has introduced the new Excalibur 10018-D2 MR low hydrogen stick electrode for all-position welding of carbon-manganese, chromium-molybdenum, and low alloy steels.

Excalibur 10018-D2 MR meets NACE requirements for corrosion resistance necessary for offshore and subsea welding of pipe carrying H2S or “sour gas.” It can also be used for welding chromium-molybdenum steels including AISI 4130, 4140 and 8630, as well as ASTM A182 and A336 Grades F22.

The new electrode features premium arc performance with square coating burn-off and improved puddle control and visibility, the company says.
