WELDING ELECTRODE CLASSIFICATIONS



MILD STEEL COATED ELECTRODES


E7018-X------


 E
 Indicates that this is an electrode.70 Indicates how strong this electrode is when welded. Measured in thousands of pounds per square inch.
1 Indicates in what welding positions it can be used.
8 Indicates the coating, penetration, and current type used. (See Classification Table below)
X Indicates that there are more requirements. (See Additional Requirements below)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WELDING POSITIONS
                                    1 Flat, Horizontal, Vertical (up), Overhead
                                    2 Flat, Horizontal
                                    4 Flat, Horizontal, Overhead, Vertical (down)
                                         Flat Position - usually groove welds, fillet welds only if welded like a “V”
                                         Fillet welds, welds on walls (travel is from side to side).
