ER4043 is a general-purpose type aluminum welding wire. It contains silicon additives, which result in improved fluidity (wetting action) of the weld pool and also produces a weld less sensitive to cracking. Its bright weld finish makes it a popular choice of welders. It can be used to weld various grades of aluminum.
ER5356 is a general-purpose type aluminum alloy, which is typically chosen for its relatively high shear strength. In addition, it also offers excellent corrosion resistance when exposed to salt water. ER5356 should be used for welding 5000 series aluminum base metals.
An extra low carbon wire for the welding of type 304L, 321 and 347 stainless steels. Provides excellent notch toughness at very low temperature, and deposit a maximum of .04% carbon in the weld metal to minimize the formation of chromium carbides and consequent susceptability to intergranular corrosion.
A premium cellulose stick electrode designed for the pipe welding industry, and the construction industry. It has low spatter and easy slag removal, with excellent operator control. Single or multiple pass, DCEP, all position.

Container type is hermetically sealed metal can.
For cutting, beveling, or gouging of all metals and removal of weld joint overlays or other unwanted materials. All-position, AC/DC (electrode positive).
High-chromium carbide alloy steel electrode used for build-up on carbon, low-alloy or austenitic manganese metals. Excellent abrasion resistance, good impact and improved corrosion resistance. AC/DC (electrode positive preferred). For 1/2" to 3/4" base materials, preheat to 200°F and cool slowly.
High-chromium manganese-alloy electrode used for buildup and overlay. Used for austenitic, carbon and low-alloy steel. Excellent impact resistance, good abrasion resistance and improved corrosion resistance. AC/DC (electrode positive preferred). For 1/2" to 3/4" base materials. Preheat to 200° F and cool slowly.
For repair in all positions of materials with 55% nickel cast iron. This electrode produces welds with higher strengths and ductility than the straight nickel electrodes. Deposits are machinable, but harder and more resistant to cracks and abrasion than high-nickel welds. AC/DC (electrode positive). Preheating is mandatory on cast iron.
This high nickel content electrode is good for castings of light to medium weight. Welds are easily produced in all positions and the deposits are readily machined. AC/DC (electrode positive). Preheating is mandatory. Cool slowly in still air.
Aluminum welding for flat, horizontal and vertical applications. DC (electrode positive) only.
For various grades of cast iron, this electrode provides an excellent, non-machinable base pass for subsequent nickel alloy repairs on contaminated cast iron. AC/DC (electrode positive preferred).
For 308 and 304 stainless base metal. Smooth, tough welds with the strength, corrosion and crack resistance needed for welding stainless steel in all positions. Easy slag removal. AC or DC electrode positive (reverse) polarity.
For hard-to-weld or dissimilar metals, stainless, high-carbon, cast, and high-nickel steels. All position, AC/DC (electrode positive), easy strike and re-strike, high moisture resistance, self-detaching slag.
For molybdenum bearing stainless steels with 1.5 - 3.0% Mo. Primarily used for resistance to pitting, acids, and general corrosion. Maintenance quality smooth running electrode for welding most stainless steels. All position. Extra low carbon content to resist pitting. 80,000 PSI tensile strength. Material to be welded should be clean of all contaminants. Maintain a short arc and use stringer beads rather than a weave technique.
