N-6011

Specification

AWS Specification: AWS A5.1 E6011
JIS Specification: D4311
Other Specification: DIN E4343C4

Description

Application

Remarks

  • Polarity: Unless otherwise specified, use AC with N-6011
  • The N-6011 electrodes can be used on DCEP with a current about 10% below normal AC values
  • Always adjust current proper arc action and control of the weld puddle
  • Flat: Hold a 3.2mm or shorter arc or touch the work lightly with the electrode tip. Move fast enough to stay ahead of the molten pool. Use currents in the middle and higher portion of the range.
  • Vertical: Vertical down drag techniques are used by pipeliners and for single pass welds on thin steel. Vertical-up is used for most fillet welds or V-butt joints. Use currents in the lower portion of the range
  • Overhead and horizontal butt welds: Use a 4.0mm diameter or smaller electrode. These welds are best made with a series of stringer beads using a technique similar to those described for first pass vertical-up welds
  • Sheet metal edge and butt welds: Use DCEP and hold a 4.0mm or longer arc. Move as fast as possible while maintaining good fusion. Position the work 45 degrees down hill for fastest welding. Use currents in the middle of the range
  • Pipe Welding: The procedure used should be checked for proper electrode size and polarity for the wall thickness, strength level, and chemistry of the pipe line being welded
