gENERAL DESCRIPTION

Weldo Electrode E6013 is a basic coated electrode. It is used particularly to weld rigidly restrained mass structures where high welding stresses are unavoidable. Weld metal has a high resistance to cracking. The slag is easy to remove and it gives excellent quality, smooth weld beads. It is also suitable for welding in vertical upwards position at a high welding speed. It has 125% metal recovery.
