Mild Steel Arc Welding Electrode



High Tensile Steel Arc Welding Electrodes


AWS E7024


The C-24 is an AWS E 7024 electrode. This is a high speed electrode when used for fillet welds. It is an exceptionally fast welding electrode when used down hand in properly designed weld joints or in horizontal fillet welds where equal leg fillets are desirable. A drag welding technique is used with the electrode operating exceptionally well on either DCEP, AC, or DCEN power. The arc force minimizes slag entrapment while the slag is self removing in most applications.


Typical applications incude: railroad cars, structurals, earth moving equipment, plate fabrication and mining machinery.
