The welding electrode or rod is a metal wire that is coated by flux and the welding rod per box contains 90 rods.
Welding Rod Per Box
As mentioned in the introduction, in performing some types of welding, we need a material to fill the empty spaces, which is called a welding rod.
Welding wires have chemical compositions similar to the base metal and are available in different types suitable for ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
In general, welding rods are divided into two types: solid rods and cored rods.
The diameter of the electrode is calculated from its core diameter.
The coating of the welding electrode is often composed of lime, cellulose, sodium oxide, clay, or asbestos.
Per box of welding rods provides you with enough rods to fill the connection space between two surfaces that need to be welded.
Welding Rod Features Per Box
An electrode or welding rod is a metal wire that is used to weld and connects two metal pieces.
Welding rods are classified by A.W.S. which stands for American Welding Society.
|Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metals
|Solid Rods and Cored Rods
The classification of welding rods is based on the standard of this organization and is considered an international standard in many countries.
The letter E before a 4 or 5 number means the electrode is used in the electric arc welding method.
If welding is done by gas method, the word E is not used and we use the letter RG instead.
The digits of the 4 or 5-digit number after the letter E specify the tensile strength of the weld.
Per box of welding rods weighs around 5kg.
Buy Welding Rod Per Box
The advantages of a welding rod have made the use of it very suitable for some connections.
Here are the features of welding rods that would help you buy the type that you need.
Deep penetration: Welding rods can penetrate deep into the root of metal.
This feature has made it possible to use this type of welding rod for the construction and connection of thin structures.
Reduction of welding defects: due to the presence of deoxidizers with different levels in all types of welding rods, defects caused by welding like porosity are reduced.
Feeding mechanism: Solid welding rods use different feeding mechanisms than others.
The number found per box is normally 90 but it can change.
