MILD STEEL ELETRODES E6013
GENERAL PURPOSE ELECTRODE WITH HIGH RADIOGRAPHIC SOUNDNESS
AWS 5.1: E6012
IS 814: ER4124
A medium coated rutile type general purpose electrode with excellent operating
characteristics like smooth and steady arc, minimum spatter and highly controlled
molten slag –metal weld pool. Slag is almost self-lifting is nature. Bead appearance is
shiny, even and very fine rippled. The weld is of high radiographic soundness. Excellent
bead finish minimizes the post weld cleaning work and operator’s fatigue.
Storage tanks, boilers, pressure vessels, railway coaches, automobile bodies, scooter
frames, sheet metal work, bridge construction, agriculture equipment and wherever
combination of strength and superior weld finish is required.
