EN ISO 3581-A: E 19 9 L R 2 2

Product Description:

The most harmful substrates, which are emitted during welding of stainless steel, are hexavalent chromium compounds. They are defined as carcinogen substances. Z308LCr welding electrode recently developed by Zika has a significantly reduced emission of hexavalent chromium. The total fume rate emission is reduced up to 40% and the rate of hexavalent chromium emission is lowered up to 50%.
