Smootharc 12 is a multi-purpose, rutile-cellulosic electrode suitable for a wide range of applications in mild steel. The electrode is fully positional, including very good appeal in the vertical-down position. The electrode welds with a crisp steady arc to produce a smooth weld bead surface to enhance good slag detachability. Performance can be insensitive to rust, dirt and surface coatings, and has good ability to bridge gaps or poor fit-up.

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 work
