Mild Steels Electrodes

ES 7014 A5.1: E 7014 / EN 499: E 42 0 RC 11


ES 7014 is a heavy coated rutile electrode. Weld metal has a high resistance to cracking in multiple applications. The slag is easy to remove, and it gives high quality, smooth weld beads, stable arc, low spatter, proper seam. It is easy to strike and re-strike an thus an ideal for tacking. It is an easy to use electrode. It has about 100 % metal recovery due to high iron powder in its coating.

ES 7014 is a general purpose electrode for welding mild steels. Bridging over fairly large gaps that can occur in site welding where preheating is not possible, galvanised plates, rusty or dirty surfaces, ordinary ship's plate of A- and D- quality, automotive bodies and general structural steels are among its application areas.
