Improved flux for industrial environments
Published:  08 June, 2021

ESAB has announced an improved OK Flux 10.99, an agglomerated neutral basic flux designed for submerged arc welding in heavy industrial environments like petrochemical plants, offshore construction, transport, LNG and LEG tanks, pressure vessel, and pulp and paper industries.

The company says the enhanced formula of the flux works, in combination with selected austenitic and nickel-based wires, performs equally well with either AC or DC+ current, and provides significantly improved slag release, increased productivity and better weld quality.

“The high basicity of OK Flux 10.99 provides superior impact and toughness,” says Paolo Torchiana, global product manager, ESAB. “Its excellent weldability in 1G and 2G positions is very smooth with much easier detaching slag. The end result is a very clean bead shape and appearance with good wetting.”
