The E6022 welding rod is similar to the E7024 welding rod but has a lower tensile strength of 60 Ksi compared to the 7024 rods (70 Ksi).
Specification: AWS A 5.1
Welding Polarity: AC and DCEN
Form: High Iron Oxide Covered Electrode for Stick Welding (Shielded Metal Arc Welding).
E6022 Welding Rod
E6022 welding rods are designed for single-pass welding Weld only. They provide a high speed and high weld deposition but with limited weld penetration.
This rod gives high welding speed with high welding amperage for groove and fillet welds in Flat positions.
