AWS A5.1 Class E7016
USA 7016 is a low hydrogen, all position electrode used
for welding heavy duty steel structures and plates. This
electrode provides excellent arc stability and produces X-ray quality weld deposits with higher crack resistance,
elongation and ductility than other mild steel electrodes. USA 7016 yields a beautiful bead appearance with easy
Typical applications would include strength members of ship hulls, rolling stocks, machinery, bridges, free-cutting steels and medium carbon steels.
