Hobart Welding Low Hydrogen Stick Electrode
March 31, 2008

For general purpose, low-hydrogen welding applications, Hobart Brothers offers the Hobart 418(AWS E7018-1 H4R), a stick electrode with several distinct features that will help improve weld quality and productivity. The Hobart 418 electrode provides excellent arc starts and restarts, produces a virtually spatter-free arc, and creates a flat weld bead profile with a fine rippled finished appearance. To minimize post-weld cleaning, the Hobart 418 features an easily removable slag that in many cases is self-peeling. The Hobart 418 electrode provides excellent penetration and a weld puddle that washes into the sidewalls with no undercutting, both benefits that minimize costly rework. The Hobart 418 also has the ability to weld smoothly on moderately dirty or rusty materials.
