Suitable welding positions

CWB to CSA W48-14 Classification: E431 0 AWS/ASME A5.1 - 04 E6010

Typical applications

Covering is low hydrogen, iron powder; common of welding applications include 71 ksi (490 MPa) class high tensile strength steels found in structural steels for buildings, bridge construction, storage tank fabrication, ship building, industrial and mining machinery fabrication.

Characteristics on usage

  • Excellent penetration with good fusion makes this electrode the preferred choice for pipeline welding
  • High ductility root weld
  • Low slag volume and easy slag removal
  • Very good bead appearance
  • Re-dry the electrode at 70-80° C for 30-60 minutes prior to use
