Hydroweld FS wet welding electrodes are the result of over 5 years research and development into flux formulations, filler metals and supplementary coatings. They are designed to work in all positions in fresh water or brine to a depth of 100 metres, their outstanding user friendly properties and wet welding characteristics, easily produce high quality wet welds to internationally recognised standards.
Hydroweld FS have rapidly become the industry standard and can meet the requirements of AWS D3.6M-99 class 'A' fillet wet welds as has been witnessed by Lloyds Register of Shipping (LRS), American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Bureau Veritas (BV), Rina and Germanisher Lloyd (GL).
Hydroweld FS wet welding electrodes are currently the only wet welding electrodes approved for permanent and temporary repairs to war ships by the British Ministry of Defence (MoD). This was gained after intensive underwater comparability testing and further none destructive and destructive testing against all other commercially available wet welding electrodes by the MoD and The Welding Institute (TWI) and as a result the electrodes are now included in the NATO codification system.
Hydroweld FS electrodes are available in 3.2 mm x 350 mm long and are sold in boxes of 90 electrodes or 4 mm x 350 mm and are sold in boxes of 60 electrodes and/or cartons of 5 boxes. We usually carry a stocks in excess of 100,000 electrodes which can be dispatched on the day of the order via a method to suit the clients needs i.e. next day, 2-3 day delivery etc.
