E7014 Welding Rod

E7014 is an Iron Powder, Titania base stick welding electrode used for welding of mild steel, carbon steel and low alloy steel welding.

E7014 welding rod is similar to E7024 welding rod however it can be used in all welding positions while E7024 can only be used for flat & horizontal welding positions.

Their coating is similar to E6012 and E6013 rods but with added iron powder for higher welding deposition efficiency with higher welding amperage.

This rod is not for radiographic soundness weld. The weld rod is mainly used for fillet welding and structure welding works.

E7014 Welding Rod meaning

E7014 welding rod means:

  • The “E” in E7014 stands for the Electrode.
  • The “70” means tensile strength in Ksi (thousand pounds per square inch).
  • The “1” means that it can be used in all positions.
  • The “4” shows the electrode’s characteristics.

E7014 Welding Rod Uses

E7014 welding rod is a low penetration, high deposition electrode. It is useful for making large fillet welds. E7014 has a good tolerance to poor fit-up and misalignment.

It is often used for heavy section welding, repair, and maintenance.

The electrode can also be used for high weld deposition and low penetration, making it ideal for large roots.

E7014 welding electrode is easy to use, good arc characteristics, easy ignition and self-detachable welding slag.
