AWS A5.1 E6027
ASME SFA 5.1 E6027
E6027 is a heavy iron powder, iron oxide coated electrode developed to provide maximum deposition efficiency and deep penetration at higher speeds. It is particularly suited for welding flat, deep groove joints as
well as horizontal butt and fillet welds. E6027 weld deposits exhibit exceptional ductility, high impact strength and easy slag removability. This electrode provides easy operation and excellent restarting capability making it suitable for intermittent welding. E6027 may be used
with AC or DC (straight or reverse polarity).
E6027 electrodes are used for the welding of ship hulls, bridges, structural steels, railroad cars, earthmoving equipment and pressure vessels or pipes that have been poisoned for horizontal welding.
