  • Produces a weld deposit chemistry similar to EM12K solid wire electrodes
  • Higher deposition rates than solid wire when run at the same current level
  • Exhibits a broader and shallower bead profile than when using solid wire, reducing the tendency for burn through
  • Capable of running directly over root passes with proper procedure – eliminating requirement for a hot pass
  • Easy slag removal – reduces post weld cleanup time


  • Select EM12KS is ideal for those applications involving the welding of structural carbon steels such as A36, A285, A515, and A516.
  • It may be used with neutral or active fluxes and may be substituted anywhere a solid wire, EM12K electrode is used.


  • Protect yourself and others read the safety data sheet prior to using this product.
