AWS A 5.17 F7A8-EM12K welding fulx xiang welding  is a high—basic agglomerated submerged arc flux. It is suitable for using DC+ single, AC single, DC+/AC and AC/AC. It provides excellent weld ability even in narrow groove. Due to its neutral behavior, good mechanical properties of weld metal can be controlled by using the appropriate wire grade.
With combination of low phosphorus wires (TSW-E22R or TSW-E23R), the X and J factors can be controlled to satisfy the step cooling requirement.
Heat treatable and heat resistant low-alloy CrMo steel Pressure vessel Fine grain structural steels for low temperature requirements High tensile fine grain steels
