R796.95R973.15 incl. VAT


Vitemax® is a premium quality rutile electrode for use in all positions including vertical downwards. This versatile electrode, which has a rapid burn-off rate, produces smooth welds in all positions. The weld metal deposited complies with radiographic quality to AWS A5.1 grade 1.

Vitemax® is recommended for welding a wide variety of carbon manganese steels having a carbon equivalent below 0,28%. It can also be used successfully in applications with higher carbon equivalents, provided the correct degree of preheat is used.


    • Smooth, quiet arc action
    • Low spatter loss with good striking and restrike characteristics
    • Excellent slag detachability – In most cases the slag is self-lifting
    • Welds relatively cold, making it ideally suited for bridging large gaps, i.e. where poor fit-up occurs, and for tacking


Either the touch or free arc technique can be used. For vertical down welding, the touch weld technique must be used with a high rate of travel.
