Often referred to as Nippon SF-3A, this is a seamless, all-positional, rutile flux cored wire designed for welding of steel with impact requirements down to -40 °C such as grade E, often used in shipbuilding. 

Common applications include welding mild steel and 490MPa high tensile strength steel for ships, machinery, steel structures, bridges, ships, rolling stock, etc.

Due to the seamless design, Nippon SF3A has an extremely low hydrogen content, (typical of ≤2.8 ml/100g), which greatly reduces the possibility of cold cracks.SF-3A emits little welding fume and minimal spatter. and has great weldability in all positions.

EN ISO : 17632-A: T 46 4 Z P M 2 H5

Nippon SF-3AM is a seamless, all-positional, rutile flux cored wire for welding low temperature steels in applications such as off-shore structures.

SF-3AM has acceptable charpy impact values down to -60 °C. The flux cored wire is CTOD-tested with good results.

Due to the seamless design, SF-3AM has an extremely low diffusible hydrogen content (typical 3 ml/100g) which greatly reduces the risk of hydrogen (cold) cracking.
