Mild Steels Electrodes

ES 6010 A5.1: E 6010 / EN 499: E 38 3 C 21


ES 6010 is an easy to strike cellulose coated electrode. Excellent molten pool controls due to easy-removable, low-volume slag and gaseous are shilling eliminates porosity problems in weld beads. In all positions easily suitable for vertical down position, it enables weld beads of high penetration and it minimises problems that frequently occur in the welding of rusty or oily steels.

Site welding of pipe and pipelines carrying natural gas, crude petroleum or alike; ship building; storage tanks, boiler and pressure vessel manufacturing, steel and bridge constructions are among its application areas. ES 6010 can be used in applications requiring high penetration. It can be used for root and deposition pass and also for pipe connections of 5LX46 grade line pipes. ES 6010 is an ideal electrode for welding in vertical downwards position. It is used for large diameter pipelines for crude oil, nature gas, water and filler pass welding of ships, tanks, boilers, steel constructions.
