The Forney 30850 7018 Mild Steel Low Hydrogen Welding Rod produces quality results on low amperage DC welders and higher amperage AC welders. Suitable for all positions on hard enable steels without preheating. Good on cold rolled steels without preheating. Good on cold rolled sheets that do not react well with conventional rod. The low hydrogen content reduces cracking and peeling of the weld material. 1/8-Inch ie.3.175 mm diameter rod. 50-Pounds ie.22.7 kg. Tensile Strength 70,000 PSI Amperage 90-150 Amps DCEP Reverse or AC. Typical Spec Example E6011: E is for electrode. The next two numbers ie.60, 70 or 80 indicates the tensile strength of the rod for example 60,000. The third number tells the welding position; ie.1=All position ie.2=Flat or Horizontal position ie.4=Flat, Horizontal, Overhead and Vertical Down position. The fourth number indicates the type of current to be used and coating of the rod; ie.0=Cellulose Sodium, with deep penetration, use Direct Current Electrode Positive ie.1=Cellulose Potassium, with deep penetration, use AC or Direct Current Electrode Positive, or Direct Current Electrode Negative ie.3=Titania Potassium, with light penetration, use AC or Direct Current Electrode Positive ie.8=Low Hydrogen, Iron Powder, with medium penetration use AC or Direct Current Electrode Positive. Claims for warranty must be made within 90 days of the date of purchase. Proof of purchase required. This warranty does not cover any product that has been subject to misuse, neglect, negligence or accident, or that has been used in any way contrary to the purpose intended.
All position welding, low hydrogen rod for general purpose AC applications requiring low penetration, can also be used on DC+
Designed for welding head enable steels and projects involving hard to weld steels including thick sections and restrained joints with cracking issues
Not recommended for use with low open circuit-Voltage OCV power sources
Excellent for tack welds and out of position welding
Ideal for general fabrication of cold roll steels
