Weldman 1 is a manganese electrode that is often used for build-up or joining manganese, low alloy and carbon steels. It can also be used for joining austenitic manganese steels together. It is typically used to repair cracks in manganese castings as well as in impactor bars, crusher rolls, and railroad crossings. Weldman 1 deposits are very tough under high impact.

Weldman 1 has a high impact resistance, fair abrasive resistance, no surface cross check and no flame cut. The type of current is AC or DC, straight or reverse polarity.
