  • Lohtragon® Metal Salts for Your High-Performance Welding Rods

    Arc welding is a welding process that is used to join metal to metal. It is a type of welding, that uses a power supply to create an electric arc between an electrode and the base material to melt the metals at the welding point.

    Flowability for Easy Mixing

    The focus of the Lohtragon® metal salts is on improved flowability for easy mixing.

    Arc Stabilizers

    The stability of the arc is crucial for producing high-quality welds. Arc stabilizers like Potassium and Sodium salts are often added to the welding consumables or integrated into the welding machines themselves to help maintain a consistent, stable arc.

    Case Study Lohtragon® O16: Enhancing Arc Stability & Slag Formation for Durable Welds
    Lohtragon® O16 | based on Dipotassium Oxalate is integral in the formulation of welding rods, aiding in arc stabilization and contributing to slag formation, which are crucial for achieving high-quality and durable welds in various applications.

    Hard Metal Deposition

    Specific Lohtragon® Oxalates ensure uniform hard metal deposition during the manufacturing process for the core of welding rods.

    In Summary

    Flowability, arc stabilizers, and hard metal deposition are all important considerations in arc welding, affecting the quality, strength, and durability of the welds. Lohtragon® metal salts can be used individually or in combination to achieve specific welding characteristics.
