A low alloyed low hydrogen electrode of AWS E9045-P2 type specially designed for downhill welding circumferential joints in pipelines API 5L X70,X80. The low hydrogen weld metal provides high notch toughness and excellent ductility to reduce the risk of cracking. The electrode has been specially designed to provide excellent striking properties and elimination of start porosity. Productivity is significantly higher than conventional low hydrogen electrodes for welding vertically up.
