E6011

Suitable welding positions

C.W.B. to CSA W48.1 AWS A5.1
ASMFE – SFA 5.1, 6011

Typical applications
Covering is high cellulose type; common applications include welding of storage tanks, pipe, pressure vessel fittings, steel sheets, piping and ship construction.

Characteristics on usage

  • Excellent all position general construction electrode designed for both DC and AC current
  • Very good electrode when welding in poor grove fit up and vertical-down, all position welding of pipe
  • Slightly higher slag volume than E6010 electrodes, good bead appearance
  • High ductility root weld and easy slag removal
  • Produces good mechanical properties, meets X-ray requirements
  • Re-dry the electrode at 70-80° C for 30-60 minutes prior to use
