NST high alloyed flux cored wires.

Method of storage:

To ensure that the wire is used at its optimum performance the following guidelines should be observed: • The welding materials should be stored inside, away from rain, snow and dew.
• The welding materials should be stored off the floor, preferably on wooden pallets which enable air circulation to take place (10cm off the floor, and 10cm off the wall).
• Store the materials places where the temperature is below 50°C and the relative humidity is less than 80%.
• Environments with sea breeze, SO2 gas etc., should be avoided.
• A plan should be devised to use materials on a first in, first out basis.
• The sealed packaging shipped from the manufacturer must be kept as it is until just before use.
