2% Thoriated Tungsten: The most common electrode used today. They contain a nominal 2 wt-% of Thorium Oxide (ThO2) throughout the entire length of the rod. Provides a stable ARC and is easy to start. Used generally on DC negative or straight polarity.
Pure Tungsten: Contain a minimum of 99.5% wt-% Tungsten. These electrodes are known to be the most economical and are considered good for general purpose welding on Aluminum and Magnesium. The tip will form a clean, balled end that provides good ARC stability on AC.
Type 6011 Mild Steel: All position electrode. Use when you are unable to prepare a welding surface. Its deep penetration allows welds through rust, scale, oil and dirt. For expert welders.
Type 6013 Mild Steel: All position electrode. Best used with clean or prepared welding surface. Excellent for low heat applications designed for general purpose. For novice welders.
Type 7014 Iron Powder: All position electrode. Best used with clean or prepared welding surface with medium to low penetration. Designed for high deposition and high electrode travel speed.
Type 7018 Low Hydrogen: All position electrode. Best used with clean or prepared welding surface with Medium penetration. Designed to produce X-ray quality welds. For skilled welders.
E6024 Quick Start Mild Steel: Best used with clean or prepared welding surface and excellent for low heat applications. Flat & horizontal fillet only.
Type 308 Stainless Steel: Provides equal or better corrosion resistance than the base metal. Can be used for fabricating and repairing austentic manganese steel.
E4043 Aluminum Arc: Best used for weld with strength ductility and corrosion resistance equal to parent metal. Applications include aluminum, sheet metal, plates, castings, tanks and piping.
