TARTAN – B
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW-Stick)
For mild and low alloy steels.
• Welds over dirt, and oil
• 80,000 psi strength
• Deep penetration
• Good on galvanized steel
• Easy vertical and overhead
• Wide range of amperage
TARTAN-B provides deep penetration deposits without slag interference. In
maintenance or production welding, the characteristics of TARTAN-B enable the
welder to produce high strength non-porous welds on pipe in tight corners and
overhead. These results are possible even when welding over paint, rust and dirt.
Can be run pass on pass over slag.
Hold electrode at a slight incline in the direction of travel. For vertical or overhead welds lower amperage setting, weave and move fast enough to prevent
weld puddle from dropping.
