Stick Welding and why use it

The stick welding is the most basic of the welding processes. It offers an easy way to join steel and other metals. The process of stick welding joins the metals when an arc struck occurs between the electrode and the work piece and a weld pool is created. At the same time is deposited consumable metal electrode into the joint. The electrode comes with a protective coating which acts as a shielding gas. It is protecting the well, keeping it pure and strong. The processes of stick electrodes and welding are used in windy environments and on rusted metals

A great choice for welding on dirty, rusty, greasy or painted steel - especially in vertical or overhead applications.

E6011

All

AC,DCEP

All-purpose stick electrode; used for carbon and galvanized steel; 60,000 PSI tensile strength; deep penetration and ideal for welding light to medium amounts of dirty, rusty or painted materials.

E6013

All

AC,DCEN,

DCEP

Light to medium penetrating all-purpose stick electrode; for use on carbon steel; 60,000 PSI tensile strength; good for general all-purpose applications and joints with poor fit-up.

E7014

All

AC,DCEN,

DCEP

For higher-deposition requirements; 70,000 PSI tensile strength; ideal for applications requiring light penetration and faster travel speeds.

E7018

All

DCEP

Low-hydrogen electrode; for low, medium and high-carbon steels; 70,000 PSI tensile strength; ideal for out-of-position welding and tacking; not recommended for low-voltage AC Welders.

E7018AC

All

AC,DCEP

Low-hydrogen electrode; for low, medium and high-carbon steels; 70,000 PSI tensile strength; ideal for out-of-position welding and tacking; specially formulated to operate with small 208/230 volt AC welders.
