Product description

Line Weight:50-Pound  |  Size:1/8-Inch

The Forney 31250 6011 Mild Steel Super Sixty Welding Rod is a mild steel, all position rod with strong arc force for deep penetration. Fast metal solidification facilitates welding in vertical and overhead positions. Light slag allows for easy clean-up. Excellent for rusty steel because of the strong arc force. Useful for galvanized tanks, steel casting, and pressure pipe. 1/8-Inch ie.3.175 mm diameter rod. 50-Pound ie.22.7 kg. Tensile strength 60,000 PSI Amperage 80-130 amps AC, DCEP, DCEN Either Polarity. Typical Spec Example E6011: E is for electrode. The next two numbers ie.60, 70 or 80 indicates the tensile strength of the rod for example 60,000. The third number tells the welding position; ie.1=All position ie.2=Flat or Horizontal position ie.4=Flat, Horizontal, Overhead, and Vertical Down position. The fourth number indicates the type of current to be used and coating of the rod; ie.0=Cellulose Sodium, with deep penetration, use Direct Current Electrode Positive ie.1=Cellulose Potassium, with deep penetration, use AC or Direct Current Electrode Positive, or Direct Current Electrode Negative ie.3=Titania Potassium, with light penetration, use AC or Direct Current Electrode Positive ie.8=Low Hydrogen, Iron Powder, with medium penetration use AC or Direct Current Electrode Positive.
