SIFTrode 6013 is a versatile and general purpose rutile-coated mild steel MMA electrode which runs smoothly and
leaves an attractive weld bead. CE approved to EN13479, SIFTrode 6013 can be confidently used on land-based steel
structures and general fabrication alike.
Siftrode 7018 is a basic coated electrode with extremely low H2 content and very high efficiency, designed for welding
carbon and carbon-manganese steels with tensile strength up to 510 MPa. It is characterized by very good mechanical
properties, especially at low temperatures. Certified and Lloyds approved.
308L and 316L are popular
grade of Stainless Steel rod with good welding characteristics. These multi-purpose rutile electrodes are for welding low carbon austenitic acid resistant stainless steels grades like AISI 316,
316L. Universal in applications but typical for all industries where superior erosion resistance is required: textile industry,
paper mills, chemical industry, food industry etc. Provides resistance to general and intergranular corrosion (up to
400°C) and good resistance to hot cracking. Re-dry at 300°C for a minimum of two hours. 312 is a
Dissimilar rod used to join low- alloyed or unalloyed steel to stainless, etc.
or where exact grades aren’t known.
NICKEL AND NICKEL/IRON
SIFTrode Pure Nickel is a basic coated electrode for cold welding grey and malleable cast iron grades and for joining base metals to steel,
copper and copper alloys. The electrode deposits a high-grade nickel weld metal which is ideal for repair welding
cracked and worn castings, including highly contaminated cast materials. Both weld metal and heat affected zones are
soft and easily machinable using files. This rod is ideally suited for the combined welding of Nickel Iron (E NiFe CI),
buttering with Siftrode Cast Iron Ni and filling with a Nickel Iron (NiFe) rod.
