ATLAS – 13S
Identification : AWS : E 6013 , BIS : ER 4221X
Characteristics : A medium heavy coated, rutile type positional welding electrode for major structural welding jobs. The deposits produced by this electrode Is smooth and clean deposit with nominal spatter loss. Lighter gauges are excellent for sheet metal working. Except for vertical down, operable In all positions.
Applications : Storage tanks, automobile bodies, LPG cylinders, railway coach panels, ships, bridges, pressure vessels, construction equipment, sheet metal working, furniture etc. X-ray quality welds.
