N-6012

Specification
AWS Specification: AWS A5.1 E6012
JIS Specification: D4313
Other Specification: 
Description
  • N-6012 is an all position general purpose electrode with good fusion characteristics and penetration
  • Well suited to bridge gaps on poor fit-up jobs
  • Easy handling on light sheet metal as well as on heavy steel structures
  • Weld has smooth, well-rounded, and even beads with closely rippled surface
  • Fillets are convex without undercutting
  • Fast freezing weld metal witha a forceful arc
  • Excellent deposition characteristics 
  • Easy slag removal and in most cases self-releasing
  • Ideal electrode for workshop and site conditions

The information contained or otherwise referenced herein is presented only as “typical” without guarantee or warranty, and Industrial Welding Corporation expressly disclaims any liability incurred from any reliance thereon. Typical data and test results for mechanical properties, deposit, or electrode composition and other properties were obtained from a weld produced and tested according to prescribed standards and should not be assumed to be the expected results in a particular application or weldment. Actual results will vary depending on many factors, including, but not limited to, weld procedure, plate chemistry and temperature, weldment design, and fabrication methods. Users are cautioned to confirm by qualification testing, or other appropriate means, the suitability of any welding consumable and procedure before use in the intended application.

  • Mild steel fabrications
  • Steel windows
  • Iron grills and fences
  • Container steel
  • Welding of ungalvanized pipes
  • Steel structures for houses, chairs, tables, ladders and other light gauge mild steels
  • Pay attention not to exceed the range of recommended currents
  • Welding with excessive current not only lowers X-ray soundness but also causes increase of spatter, under-cut, and insufficient slag covering
  • For ultimate performance, dry the electrodes at 70-100 degrees C for 30-60 minutes before use
  • Excessive moisture absorption lowers usability and may result in porosity
  • Excessive drying before use may result in less penetration and overheating of the electrode
  • For Philippine market only
