E6019 Welding Rod Polarity
E6019 welding rod can be used with AC, DCEP (Electrode Positive- Reverse Polarity) and DCEN polarity (Electrode Negative-Straight Polarity).
E6019 Welding Rod Position
E6019 welding rod is an all-position welding rod. E6019 can be used for welding in Flat, Horizontal, vertical and overhead welding positions welding.
E6019 Welding Electrode Baking & Storage
Baking or drying of E6019 shall be carried out at a temperature of 275°F ± 25°F or 135°C ± 15°C for minimum 1 hours.
The dried electrode shall be kept in holding oven at a temperature of 20°F to 40°F (10°C to 20°C).
6019 Welding Rod Amperage
Welding amperage selection for E6019 welding rod depends on its diameter. 1/8” rod works good with 80- 150 amperes, 5/32” with 120- 200 Amps and 3/16” with 150- 230 amps.
E6019 Welding Rod Uses
E6019 Welding Rod is an all-position, Iron oxide Titania Potassium electrode designed for use with all welding polarity (it can be used with AC, DCEN and DCEP polarity.
It can be used on a wide range of base metals, including carbon steels, low alloy steels, and high-strength steels.
This welding rod is similar to E6013 and E6020 in terms of welding characteristics.
The main benefits of E6019 welding rod are deep welding penetrations, high ductility and radiographic quality welds.
6019 welding rods can be used for single pass and multipass welding applications.
