7018--70=70000 lbs tensile strength
7018--1==all positons.
7018-- last digit is electrode characteristics--8-iron powder, low hydrogen-ac, dcr-shallow to medium penetration,convex bead,fill freeze. Unless you are wlding cast or stainless or exotic metals I would suggest you use what you can control the best. 6011 is cheap and a fast chill rod that is easy to use and very forgiving. 6010 and 6013 need a lot prep to make agood weld, if multipass allslag needs to be removed meticulously.

This guy. Use 6013 to tack or root pass, it starts easier. then 7018 to put in the rest of the passes to build up the weld, it's stronger. If the part is cast and thick, grind a vee into it and heat it up first.

(quoted from post at 02:50:24 12/02/06) Mild steel is around 60,000 psi tensile so 7018 is more than enough. Tensile strength isn't the only factor in determining the proper rod. They make up to 12018. The higher tensile rods are made for higher tensile or specialty steels like T-1 or chrome moly etc. 7018 is the most used rod on pressure vessels and piping. 6010 is common for field welded pipelines done by hand. It is done going downhill. Other than MIG other rods don't have a lot of strength going vertical down. Dave <br>


I wonder what they weld submarine pressure hulls with ?
