What does E6013 mean?

What does E6013 mean?

Thus the number E6013 written on an electrode indicates that it is a rutile potassium based flux coated mild steel electrode with 62,000 psi minimum tensile strength having light penetration which can be used in all positions of welding except vertically down.

What is E6013 used for?

The 6013 is a general-purpose welding electrode made of mild steel and can be used in all positions of a welding process. The electrode delivers a smooth and medium penetrating arc. The electrode can be used with small AC power sources having low open-circuit voltage as well.

Where are 6013 welding rods used?

The 6013 electrode is often used in situations that involve irregular or short welds that require a change in position because it provides a very stable arc and a smooth finish.

What type of rod is E6013?

E6013 is a mild-steel, all position, general purpose cellulose-base rod. It operates on AC or DC welding current and works well on low voltage AC machines. E6013 is an excellent choice where there is poor fit-up in the joint. It deposits easily and smoothly producing medium to shallow penetration.

What is DCEN DCEP?

Direct current electrode positive (DCEP) is what we used to call reverse polarity. Direct current electrode negative (DCEN) is what we used to call straight polarity.

What is the difference between e6013 and e7018?

the main difference is that e 7018 is a serious rod used in structural code work. e6013 is considered a farmer general purpose rod that is easy to use. e6013 are not used on any serious construction project.

In which current will a 6013 welding rod work?

The 6011 and 6013 electrodes can be used on both alternating and direct currents. Alternating current is an electrical current that changes direction of flow, while direct current flows steadily in one direction.

When would you use a 6013 Rod?

Can you weld stainless with 6013?

You can use 6013, depending on your welders capacity. It’s much like 6011 which i’ve used on SS before.

What is the polarity of 6010?

6011 runs on AC and direct current electrode positive (DCEP), while 6010 runs only on DCEP.
