Gedik Welding’ s GeKa ELCOR R 71 flux cored welding wire has been qualified for obtaining H5 hydrogen certificate as a result of the tests conducted by German research center Salzgitter Mannesmann.

As one of the most outstanding test and research centers of the world with 320 employees and 8 main departments in Duisburg and Salzgitter; SalzgitterMannesmann is a renowned institution with its vast R&D experience and studies on pipes, steel, metal and welding.

As a result of the hydrogen analysis conducted by Germany-based Salzgitter Mannesmann Research Center; GeKa ELCOR R 71 type flux cored wire has been qualified for a new certification thanks to its hydrogen level as low as 3.56 ml/100gr.

The main significance of this certificate is the preference of usage of flux cored wires with too low hydrogen levels against high fracture toughness under low temperatures and hydrogen fractures in high-tension steels.

This certification is a clear evidence of the extremely high performance and safety of GeKa ELCOR R 71 under every condition.

GeKa ELCOR R 71 type flux cored wire is expected to be a favourite brand in domestic and overseas markets with the proven international validity of this certificate awarded by the research center.
