Great in single or multi-pass welds particularly on thin-gauge mild or galvanized steel. Typically used for light structural, machinery part fabrication, prefab construction, railroad car repair, short assembly welds, tanks and general fabrication.
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.
An all-purpose stick electrode for use in all positions on carbon and galvanized steel. 60,000 PSI tensile strength. Deep penetrating, ideal for welding through light to medium amounts of dirty, rusty or painted materials. Runs on AC or DCEP (reverse) polarity.
A light to medium penetrating all-purpose stick electrode for use in all positions, on carbon steel. 60,000 PSI tensile strength. Runs on AC or DCEP (reverse) polarity or DCEN (straight) polarity. Good for general, all-purpose applications and joints with poor fit-up.
For high-deposition requirements, this stick electrode is ideal for applications requiring light penetration and faster travel speeds. 70,000 PSI tensile strength. It runs in all positions on AC or DCEN (straight) or DCEP (reverse) polarity.
A low-hydrogen electrode for use in all positions on low, medium and high-carbon steels. 70,000 PSI tensile strength. Ideal for out of position welding and tacking. Runs on AC or DCEP (reverse) polarity. Not recommended for low-voltage AC welders.
A low-hydrogen electrode for use in all positions on low, medium and high-carbons steels. 70,000 PSI tensile strength. Ideal for out of position welding and tacking. Runs on AC or DCEP (reverse) polarity. Specially formulated to operate with small 208/230 volt AC welders.
Solid brass spring-loaded jaws accept rods in 45, 90, or 180 degree positions.
A quarter turn of the handle loosens the rod for removal or replacement. Electrodes burn within 1 inch from the head and can be bent to any angle and still be held secure. Compact design accepts #2 cable.
Keeps electrodes fresh and dry with an airtight seal. Convenient belt clip and internal divider with four separate storage areas. Electrodes not included.

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°
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°
Aluminum welding for flat, horizontal and vertical applications. DC (electrode positive) only.
For cutting, beveling, or gouging of all metals and removal of weld joint overlays or other unwanted materials. All-position, AC/DC (electrode positive).
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.
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 use with bare bronze. Cleans well to allow for good adhesion.
Flat, high-strength, self-fluxing alloy for copper-to-copper (without flux) and copper-to-bronze with 5130 flux. Preheating is recommended for some applications.
Low temperature, self-fluxing rod for use on aluminum and magnesium. 700° F melting temperature.
Low fuming bronze gas welding rods are made of copper/tin alloy to produce a rod that flows easily, joins a variety of metals including cast and malleable iron, galvanized steel, bronze, copper and steel. These rods have a melting point of 1630°
Mild steel copper-coated oxy-acetylene gas welding rods are made of high quality carbon steel. These rods have a melting point of 2750°
