Guide to Manual Metal Arc Welding Electrodes

ESAB is offering free copies of its latest 64-page Manual Metal Arc Electrodes catalogue that lists hundreds of products for MMA welding. In addition to the in-depth technical data for each electrode, the catalogue includes guidance on storage and handling, packaging options, and general information about electrode selection, avoidance of cold cracking, and tables to enable electrode consumption to be calculated. There is also a table for comparing hardness measurements across different scales, and other conversion tables, conversion factors and general welding-related data.

The main body of the catalogue is divided into sections for mild steel, low-alloyed steel, stainless steel, and repair and maintenance electrodes. For each welding electrode, the catalogue provides a description, indication of positional suitability, classifications, composition, typical mechanical properties of the weld metal, approvals, and a table of welding parameters for the available electrode diameters. Users of MMA welding electrodes will therefore find the publication an extremely useful reference document as well as a product catalogue.
