TOKO AWS A5.1 E6011 welding electrode is a cellulose electrode as its flux coating contains cellulose. Cellulose is an organic compound that consists of around30% of the total amount in weight of the electrode coating. In some places, wood powder or paper pulp is added to reduce the cellulose content. The cellulose content in the flux coating of a cellulose electrode like the E6011 is transformed into hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide gas in the arc which, in turn, increases the tensile strength of the welded part.

Moreover, the cellulosecoating of the E6011 welding rod allows for deeper weld penetration. Furthermore, the E6011's high cellulose potassium coating allows and helps conduct AC and DC electric current.

Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding is a popular type of welding that utilizes tungsten electrodes to join various metals. The tungsten electrode is a critical component in the process, as it channels the current required to establish the ARC.

The tungsten electrodes can be alloyed with a variety of metals. Different types and sizes of electrodes are used for different types of welds and materials, and welders develop preferences based on welding style and project. Certain electrode types perform better with alternating current (AC) as opposed to direct current (DC). Electrodes are shipped without a ground tip. If grinding a tip, make a tight, sharp point in order to achieve a powerful and precise arc to ensure a clean weld.

Below is a table describing the differences in TIG electrode types for you reference.

Type AC/DC Usage
2% Lanthanated (Blue) AC/DC The blue lanthanated electrodes are popular due to the relative ease of striking an arc and lower amperage required. They perform exceptionally well in both AC & DC applications and are a popular general use electrode. Blue electrodes are effective for welding aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, nickel alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys, low-alloyed steels, and non-corroding steels.
Thoriated (Red) DC

The red thoriated type is America’s favorite electrode for a reason. Extremely long lasting and highly durable, these electrodes are a staple in DC welding applications. These red electrodes are best for copper alloys, nickel alloys, titanium alloys, and non-corroding steels.

1.5% Lanthanated (Gold) DC The gold lanthanated tungsten electrodes contain less lanthanum than their blue counterparts and are best used in DC applications. They are best for welds with titanium alloys, copper alloys, nickel alloys, and non-corroding steel.

1. Below data sheets from tests carried out in accordance to AWS and GB standard procedure. They only represent values we get under those conditions. They are not to be taken as guarantees. As to welding, individual test results may vary;depending on experience & technique, flux type, base metal,joint preparation, flux preparation, ampere, voltage, etc.

2. If welding fluxes are stored in improper environment or influenced by condensed moisture, anyway, they get damp, please dry them at 300-350℃ for 2 hours before usage.

3.Please clean the rust,oil,water on base metal before welding.

4. Add minumum 20% new flux when using recovered flux to avoid welding defects and maintain welding performance; mechanical properties.

5. Please control parameters properly, like preheat temperature,interpass temperature,cooling rate. Read or download Flux Mill Test Reports: TOKO.SJ101, TOKO.SJ301, TOKO.SJ501, TOKO.HJ107, TOKO.HJ260 etc

Welding Rods Size And AMPS
The following will serve as a basic guide of the amp range that can be used for different size welding electrodes. Note that these ratings can be different between various electrode manufactures for the same size rod. Also the type coating on the electrode could effect the amperage range.

When possible, check the manufactures info of the electrode you will be using for their recommended amperage settings.

Welding Rod Diameter

AMP Range Plate
3/32" (2.5MM) 40 - 125 UP TO 1/4"
1/8" (3.2MM) 75 - 185 OVER 1/8"
5/32" (4.0MM) 105 - 250 OVER 1/4"
Note! The thicker the material to be welded, the higher the current needed and the larger the electrode needed.
