ELGA Cromarod 312 Dissimilar electrodes
Dissimilar welding rods are used when you are welding 2 different grades of steel together, especially if one of the steels is a special grade such as an alloy steel or a hi carbon steel.
I tend to use them if I am welding on a new bearing spigot onto a piece of machinery.
