Basically, electrodes are coated metal wires that are made of materials that can be welded similar to other metals. There are two types of electrodes available that are shielded metal arc and inert gas welding electrodes. Both these types are available in different forms, specifications, and grades. The most popular and widely used grade and the material electrode are Mild steel low alloy steel E8018 B6 E502 16 welding electrodes. These electrodes are manufactured using top-notch quality of material and latest technology. Shanti metal being the leading manufacturers of electrodes aim is to provide a high quality of electrodes with different specifications and standards.
Features of mild steel and low alloy steel welding electrodes:
• Excellent corrosion resistance
• Tensile strength
• Better weld position
• Base metal
There are even heavy and light coated electrodes available where the light coating is applied using spraying, washing, brushing and wiping. On the other hand, heavy coated electrodes are often coated using drip or extrusion.
These electrodes are available in different specifications, standards, grades, and dimensions. In addition to it, there are even some international grades included while manufacturing these electrodes of high quality. To check how efficient and durable, these electrodes are, there are several tests done such as:
• Hardness test
• Visual inspection
• Flaring test
• Flattening test
• Third party inspection
• Corrosion resistant test
All these tests are done as per the trade norms and regulations. In the end, Mild steel low alloy steel E8018 B6 E502 16 welding electrodes are packed in the excellent quality of packaging material to put a stop to rust and damages.
