A bit more Info
RD-260 Welding Rods have a fluid, yet quick freezing flux, facilitating all position welding, except vertical down.
RD-260 Welding Rods have a smooth, stable arc when used with either an AC, or DC arc welder. Spatter is minimal and smooth seams with even ripples are achievable. Slag is easy to remove and metal recovery is around 98% with respect to the weight of the core wire, so the RD-260 Welding Rod is also an economical choice.
