Sureweld 10P Plus is a modified version of the standard 10P electrode and can be differentiated by its gray coating. It has also been developed for the pipe welding industry but has a more consistent burn-off and a more forgiving arc burn. This provides a better bead profile and sidewall fusion with lower spatter. Sureweld 10P Plus will maintain the proper keyhole in an open root and will produce X-ray quality joints in the flat, horizontal, overhead, vertical-up, and vertical-down procedures. Sureweld 10P Plus is recommended for welding API grades A25, A, B and X42 pipe and general structural, ship, barge and storage tank fabrication. It may also be used for welding root passes in higher grade pipe in some circumstances.
