WIPWeld FerroCord (AWS E6012)

An easy to weld rutile-type electrode for general construction and repair of mild steel machinery and equipment. Weldability in all positions is easy, the slag is easy to remove, and weld bead is smooth. Striking and re-striking is relatively easy and is therefore an ideal electrode for tacking.


Applications and Directions

Suited for sheet metals construction, plumbing works, metal furnishes, and for bridging gaps on poor fit-up joints

Use either AC or DC straight polarity (DC-) current. Hold short arc and keep the size of the molten pool small and regular. Welding upward is recommended for vertical position, although welding may be done from top to bottom on lighter metal using small-size electrodes (3.25mm or smaller). In overhead welding use small-size electrodes with little weaving
