Stick Electrodes for Carbon and Low Alloy Steel
by Lincoln Electric
Publication C2.10


If you ever wondered why, are there so many electrodes other than sizes. And then the question of which one for which application. This is the booklet for you.

It starts with How to select electrodes, then gives some suggested ones for the common trade name steels. Then moves on to the Fast Freeze group, Fast Fill groups, Low Hydrogen group, and Low Hydrogen,Low Alloy Steel Group. And finishes up with all you ever wanted to know about the AWS numbering System.

In each grouping of electrodes it covers:

    * Specific Electrode applications
    * Electrode Identification and operating data
    * Mechanical property requirements
    * Mechanical properties test results
    * Conformances and approvals

It has the charts and some line drawings to illustrate the topics covered. It also has the basic selection process down into 4 sections. The general methods going to be used to fabricate and steel type, Code Quality,Carbon Steel Welding, or High Strength and Low Alloy Steel welding. Again this one is punched for a 3 hole binder cover.
