Microcrystalline Cellulose and Lactose Monohydrate

Modified Cellulose Powder

Modified Cellulose Powder


In casting material of welding electrodes APCELL is used in considerable quantities. High Cellulose content ensures correct burning of Electrodes, APCELL is a inert material and it leaves practically nothing after incineration and provides reduction atmosphere due to decomposition of organic material present in APCELL thus it prevents oxidation. Resultant welding will be free from pinholes, cracks etc. APCELL having wonderful free flow ness helps in smooth extrusion of Electrode without any cracks on its surface. APCELL, which has now become a synonymous name in Electrode world, is a must for all grades of quality electrodes.

Quantum To Be Used

The amount to be used in welding Rod industries depends on the quality of Welding electrodes and other ingredients in the flux. Percentage of APCELL in Electrode Flux Reported is 3 – 8%.
