Welding electrodes

The main purpose of welding is to join materials together by melting them in the right place. This allows them to be fused together. Welding makes it possible to bind metals but also plastics. Apart from welding with welding wires, electric welding plays an important role in many businesses. Properly performed electric welding is only possible if you invest in good quality tools and welding electrodes - the appropriate materials can be found in this category.

Electric welding requires material such as welding electrodes to create a weld. They are made of metal cores and are covered with coatings that affect the final quality of the welds created. There are many products on the market that enable electrode welding - in this category you will also find welding electrodes available in different lengths and diameters and with different types of applications. Choosing the right one depends on the type of material to be welded, the welding position and conditions and the weld itself.

Covered electrodes - construction

A coated electrode is composed of a metal core and a coating which is 60% of the thickness of the electrode core. The latter is responsible for creating an adequate gas shield of the arc and protecting the liquid metal from contact with air. The coating additionally introduces deoxidizing and nitrogen-fixing elements into the welding area. The coating creates a slag layer over the weld pool and the solidifying weld. The cover consists of a mixture of mineral and organic components as well as metals and ferroalloys.

Electric welding produces a weld. It is produced by the operator manually moving a coated electrode along the weld line. The weld consists of the molten metallic core of the electrode, the lagging components and the molten edges of the work piece. In order to weld properly, high quality welding electrodes are required - on our portal you will find appropriate proposals, which you can select according to their properties.

The most popular welding electrodes

The most popular welding electrodes are rutile electrodes. They are not only cheap, but also easy to use. With their help it is possible to make a very smooth weld and in any position. Definite advantages of such welding electrode is its easy melting and lack of spatters during its use. Rutile electrodes are used for welding thin parts and making short joints.

Another type is durable cellulose electrodes. These types of welding electrodes are resistant to damage. They can be used outdoors even in adverse weather conditions and do not require drying. Another type is welding electrodes acid - they are slightly less durable than rutile, but allow you to obtain smooth and flat welds. Alkaline electrodes, on the other hand, thanks to their composition poor in hydrogen, allow you to create resistant to damage, for example, to cracking, welds. Welding with alkaline electrode is a good idea when welding metal structures - especially thick, rigid and exposed to significant loads. This type of welding electrodes are otherwise known as electrodes for cast iron - with them you can weld gray and malleable cast iron. Welding electrodes electrodes for cast iron of the appropriate thickness can be found packed in several pieces in this category - pay attention to the specific specifications, and you will certainly choose the right welding electrodes **electrodes **for your needs.

In this category you will also find special electrodes, which are combinations of different types of electrodes, thus combining their properties. Thus, welding electrodes can be rutile-cellulose or rutile-base electrodes. They are created to work effectively with specific materials.

Welding with electrodes - how to choose the electrode diameter

For proper electrode welding, it is also important to choose the diameter of the electrode. The diameter of the electrode is selected according to the thickness of the workpiece or weld. Standard sizes start at 1.6 mm and go up to 6 mm. We also offer intermediate diameters - 2 mm, 2.5 mm, 3.2 mm, 4 mm and 5 mm. You will choose them according to the thickness of the welded element, which, for example, for 1.6 mm thickness of the electrode should be from 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm, while for 6 mm - it can reach from 9 mm to 12 mm. Our portal offers various types of electrodes, which you can adjust according to their type and diameter. Check also the other categories and order the appropriate elements today.
