ATLAS – 13SS
Identification : AWS : E 6013 , BIS : ERR 4221X
Characteristics : This is a heavy coated, positional welding electrode. A good electrode for heavy structural work, and high speed production welding of radiographic quality. The electrode provides a smooth clean deposit with nominal spatter loss. Slag is easily detachable. Radiographic quality welds are being produced.
Applications : Storage tanks, locomotive fireboxes, railway coach panels, fine furniture, scooter frames, automobile bodies, boilers and wherever strength combined with streamlined finish is necessary. Best suited for bridging wide root gaps.
