bercoweld® K3 is a special copper wire for coated electrodes. Suitable for arc welding of copper as well as joining copper with steel, gray cast iron and Ni alloys from 3mm wall thickness. Especially suitable for large workpieces.
Pulsed power welding is recommended.
Preheating of the base material is usually not necessary.
