Highlights•Anti-hygroscopic coated electrodes were fabricated for the first time by adding colloidal nanosilica to the flux binder.•Colloidal nanosilica was uniformly dispersed in the electrode coating.•Colloidal nanosilica reduced the hygroscopicity of the electrode coating.•The weld metal diffusible hydrogen content was greatly decreased.
