E6022 Welding Rod


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).

Classification: E6022

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.
