Weldman 3 is a manganese electrode that is often used for build-up or overlay manganese, low alloy and carbon steels. It is good for use in hardening chromium austenitic manganese steel. Weldman 3 deposits are tough and they work harden rapidly under high impact.

Weldman 3 has a high impact resistance, fair abrasive resistance. The type of current is AC or DC, straight or reverse polarity.
