The 6013 electrode is often used in situations that involve irregular or short welds that require a change in position because it provides a very stable arc and a smooth finish.
6013 is an all- purpose electrode that provides a soft steady arc which is easily regenerated, easy slag control for vertical-down welding, low spatter and a beautiful bead appearance.
A versatile, deep penetrating steel electrode with smooth, stable arc characteristics. The coating produces a forceful, spray-type arc, resulting in deep penetrating welds. The slag is thin and easily removable.
Application: Vehicles, fabrication structure building and repair, sheet metal, build-up of over machined and worn mild steel surfaces, general light fabrication.
