Smootharc 13 is a thicker coated all positional rutile electrode that performs very well in the down hand position, exceptionally well in the vertical-up and overhead positions, and can also be used in the vertical-down position. The electrode welds with a very smooth, low spatter arc to produce a finely rippled bead surface with excellent slag detachability.
For welding mild steels, sheet metal, tank work and general fabrication
Excellent strike / re-strike and a high tolerance to large gaps or poor fit-up
Easy to use and recommended for all round fabrication workEspecially good for the less experienced welder
