ITEM #: 30805



E7018 mild steel low hydrogen welding electrodes easily produce quality results on smaller amperage DC or DCEN. Use for field erections, steel structures, frames, trailer hitches and chassis.


  • OUT OF POSITION WELDING: This welding rod is suitable for all positions on hardenable steels where no preheat is used, and on cold rolled steels normally exhibiting excessive porosity when welded with conventional rod.
  • LOW HYDROGEN: The low hydrogen content of these electrodes reduces cracking and peeling of the weld material.
  • MULTIFUNCTIONAL: These electrodes are also ideal for tack welding, and for projects that involve difficult steels to weld (thick sections, restrained joints with cracking issues, etc.).


  • Recommended polarity DCEP (reverse) or DCEN
  • Diameter: 1/8 in (3.18 millimeters)
  • Weight: 5 lbs. (2.26 kg)
  • Tensile strength: 84,000 PSI
  • Amperage: 100-140
  • Not recommended for use with low open circuit-voltage OCV power sources
