How Many Welding Rods are in a Box

I get asked “how many welding rods are in a box”, a lot! So I guessed it was about time I published some figures!

There are some variables when it comes to how many welding rods are in a box.

The length of the welding rod is the biggest variable.

Smaller diameter welding rods, eg 1.6mm, 2.0mm & 2.5mm can be 250mm, 300mm or 350mm long.

Larger diameter welding rods can be 350mm or 450mm long.

As welding rods are sold by weight, you will get less longer rods than short.

The following guide to how many rods are in a box shows the number of welding rods per Kg, so you need to multiply this by the weight of the box!

Mild Steel

  • 1.6mm x 250mm = 153 per Kg
  • 2.0mm x 300mm = 98 per Kg
  • 2.5mm x 350mm = 51 per Kg
  • 3.2mm x 350mm = 32 per Kg
  • 4.0mm x 450mm = 18 per Kg
  • All figures are approximate

Stainless Steel

  • 1.6mm x 250mm = 129 per Kg
  • 2.0mm x 300mm = 89 per Kg
  • 2.5mm x 300mm = 53 per Kg
  • 3.2mm x 350mm = 30 per Kg
  • 4.0mm x 350mm = 19 per Kg
  • All figures are approximate

FeNi Cast iron

  • 2.5mm x 300mm = 60 per Kg
  • 3.2mm x 350mm = 33 per Kg
  • 4.0mm x 350mm = 22 per Kg
  • All figures are approximate
