E6010 Carbon Steel Pipe Welding Electrode Blue Demon

E6010 Carbon Steel Pipe Welding Electrode Blue Demon


E6010 is an all position, cellulosic electrode
that has a quick-starting, steady, and deep
penetrating arc. It produces x-ray quality
welds in flat, horizontal, overhead, vertical-up,
and vertical-down positions. E6010 was
developed for the pipe welding industry
and is recommended for welding API grades
A25, A, B, and X42 pipe and general
structural fabrication.

Typical Applications
• General-purpose fabrication
• Maintenance welding
• Out-of-position X-ray welds
• Construction and shipbuilding
• Pipe welding
• Vertical and overhead plate welding
