Dual Shield II 101H4M is one of a series of low hydrogen flux cored electrodes introduced by ESAB. Each of the new Dual Shield II H4 wires is an all-position flux cored electrode that provides excellent low temperature toughness in both the as welded and/or stress relieved conditions (as applicable) when used with 75% Ar/25% CO2. Each can produce diffusible hydrogen levels of < 4mL/100g deposited over a wide range of welding parameters. Dual Shield II 101H4M is especially designed to weld HY-80 and HSLA-100 steels typically used in shipbuilding. Suitable for single or multi-pass welding applications. This wire was developed to meet the stringent requirements of MIL-E-24403/2 and offshore welding, and it is an ideal choice for HSLA steels.
