Welding ELECTRODES

Welding ELECTRODES

The electrode wire comes generally in the form of coils and of normal sizes may be of the order of 0.5 to 6 mm. Depending upon the base material, various wire compositions are available. For steels, electrodes wire having deoxidizers are used because, the deoxidizers help in the reduction of oxidation of the weld metal as well as the porosity. The electrode wire is produced by wire drawing, and uniform diameter throughout otherwise the arc may saunter.
