-SofTouch® electrodes are used for on-site repairs in many applications where steel must be joined underwater according to code specifications.
-SofTouch® welds consistently meet or exceed AWS D3.6-98 specifications for Type B welds, the American Welding Society’s standard for certifying underwater welds. SofTouch is designed to pass all AWS test requirements including radiograph, bends and hardness and is the wet welding electrode welding engineers and divers prefer.
-Since 1989, SofTouch electrodes have been specified in the U.S. Navy’s Ships Husbandry Manual Chapter 11, “Underwater Wet and Dry Chamber Welding.” U.S. and Navy diving commands, shipyards, and contractors use SofTouch for repairs and maintenance on Naval vessels worldwide.
-SofTouch wet welding electrodes are sealed in a Mil-Spec foil pouch to prevent contamination. The electrodes are then packaged in a rigid resealable plastic tube which provides maximum protection. The color-coded end cap denotes mild or stainless steel electrodes.
Available in various sizes and alloys for both mild steel and stainless. SofTouch mild steel electrodes are available in 1/8”, 5/32” and 3/16” diameters. Stainless steel electrodes are available in 1/8” and 5/32” diameters.
