- High Purity
Alpha-Cel powdered cellulose is made using only the highest quality cellulose pulps with very low levels of impurities.
- Low Residue After Ignition
Alpha-Cel, high purity cellulose, burns cleanly during welding leaving minimal residue.
- Forms Carbon Dioxide Shield
Alpha-Cel, powdered cellulose, rapidly produces CO2 which forms a layer of shielding gas around the electrode preventing oxidation of welded metal.
- Increases Bond Strength
Alpha-Cel, powdered cellulose, forms a strong fibrous matrix with other welding electrode flux coating materials and increases the strength of the bond between flux and rod.
