Stick Electrode Designed to Improve Spot Weld Quality

TROY, Ohio.  June 30, 2008-For welding roof decking to support beams and other similar applications that require burn-through spot welds with full penetration, Hobart Brothers offers its Hobart® Deckmaster1139 mild steel stick electrode. The Deckmaster 1139 is versatile enough to weld through galvanized, painted, plated or mildly dirty roof decking and still produce the desired penetration, weld quality and strength. It can also be used for rapid downhill welding when joining light gauge materials and sheet metal.

The Deckmaster 1139 offers a smooth, easy-to-control arc that helps welding operators achieve high-quality spot nugget welds, and it also features excellent strike and re-strike capabilities to increase weld efficiency and limit rework.  Low spatter levels and a light slag add to the Deckmaster 1139’s excellent weld appearance and lessen the time needed for cleanup.Hobart Brothers offers 50-lb. cartons of Deckmaster 1139 stick electrodes in 1/8- or 5/32-inch diameters in industry-standard lengths of 14 inches.  These stick electrodes conform to AWS A5.1 and can be used for a variety of short arc or dragging welding techniques as indicated by this code.
