E6022

E6022 is designed for welding roof decking to support beams and other similar applications where burn-through spot welds with full penetration are required. E6022 is also designed to weld through galvanized or painted roof decking and can be used on plated and dirty decking as well. It is also excellent for rapid downhill welding when joining light gauge materials.
