A general purpose electrode for mild steel that produces a smooth, quiet, medium-penetrating arc that is readily maintained with minimal spatter loss. Conforms to ANSI/AWS A5.1 & ASME SFA 5.1 E6013.
Ideally suited for general purpose welding, even with small AC power sources having low open-circuit voltage. Used for vehicles, ship building and repair, sheet metal, build-up of over-machined and worn mild steel surfaces and general light fabrication.
- Tensile strength - Up to 59,700 psi
- Yield strength - up to 67,700 psi
- Elongation in 2- 29.6%
- All position
- Slag lifts easily, revealing a finely rippled bead contour
- Quick freezing slag provides optimum performance in the vertical down welding position
