Stick Consumables

Stick Consumables - Electrodes are used in all-electric arc welding processes. ... For example, in typical electric arc welding, the consumable electrode is the filler metal welding rod and contains a flux that contributes to producing a barrier to protect the weld from any contamination. One of our most regularly-supplied items, we only supply branded Stick Consumables for best performance and reliability.  SMAW or stick electrodes are consumable, meaning they become part of the weld and are also referred to as a filler electrodes or welding rods.

there are many kinds of electrodes. Here are the most popular stick welding (SMAW) electrodes:

  • E6013 and E6012: For thin metals and joints that do not easily fit together.
  • E6011: Good for working on surfaces that are oily, rusted, or has dirt. Versatile in that it works with DC or AC polarity. Creates little slag, another big plus. Note that this electrode should not be placed into an electrode oven.
  • E6010: Similar to the E6011 but only works with direct current (DC). Note that this electrode should not be placed into an electrode oven.
  • E76018 and E7016: Manufactured with iron powder in the flux. It creates strong welds but has a puddle that might present some control issues for beginners.
