E-6013 GM 40 2.5x450mm
IS:814-2004 : ER4211X
AWS/A5.1 : E 6013
A medium coated, rutile electrode intended for welding light to medium sections in Mild steel suitable for all positions. It gives radiographic quality welds.
E-6013 GM 40 2.5x450mm is a type of welding electrode used for shielded metal arc welding (SMAW). It is a rutile-coated electrode, which means that it has a high cellulose content and produces a stable arc with minimal spatter. The 2.5x450mm specification refers to the diameter and length of the electrode.
The recommended welding parameters for E-6013 GM 40 2.5x450mm will depend on the type and thickness of the material being welded, as well as the specific welding machine being used. However, as a general guideline, a welding current of 35-60 amps is typically recommended for this type of electrode.
E-6013 GM 40 2.5x450mm offers several advantages over other types of welding electrodes. These include: Easy to use: This electrode is easy to use, making it a good choice for novice welders. Good for thin materials: E-6013 GM 40 2.5x450mm is designed for welding thin materials, typically less than 1/8 inch thick. Minimal spatter: This electrode produces a stable arc with minimal spatter, which helps to create clean welds. Versatile: E-6013 GM 40 2.5x450mm can be used for welding a wide range of materials, including mild steel, galvanized steel, and some low-alloy steels.
