Use AC or DC reverse polarity with normal maintenance welding procedures. Surface area should be as clean as possible. However, Cronaweld™ 3880 is manufactured with special cleansing and fluxing agents to promote sound welds under most conditions. Hold a medium to short arc and tilt electrode 10° in direction of travel. Remove slag between passes.
