AWS A5.1 E6012
ASME SFA 5.1 E6012
E6012 high titania coated electrodes were developed for usage on thin sections and poor fit-up joints where shallow penetration is required.
This electrode produces a quiet arc forceful enough to prevent slag build-up during vertical down welding. E6012 electrodes produce smooth, uniform weld deposits with low spatter and low porosity. Maximum deposition efficiency is attained even at increased currents and travel
speeds on thick and thin base plates. E6012 electrodes may be used in any position.
E6012 is used for welding steel window frames, sheet steel, metal furniture, railway freight cars, automobiles, ships, barges, rolling stocks, pipes, castings and tanks. It is an excellent electrode to use for lap fillet joint welding on bottom plates in tanks.
