Welding electrodes mark welding qualification

Vodex MMA welding electrodes are aimed at professional welders looking to achieve high quality welding by offering users a general purpose electrode with improved metallurgical properties.

But for many young apprentice welders undertaking basic MMA training at college or in a company welding school, the progression to the pink Vodex electrode marks the end of basic training and the start of advanced training for open root welding runs in pipe and welding in position.

Vodex, from Murex Welding Products, is a high quality rutile electrode specially designed for horizontal, vertical and overhead welding of mild steel plate and pipe. However, it still maintains the essential characteristics for good downhand or flat position welding. The name Vodex is in fact an acronym for: V vertical, O overhead, D downhand welding available (EX) from Murex.

The electrodes are suitable for mild and medium tensile steel plate and pipe and offer weld metal properties of 47J @ -20 deg C. The diameter range available is 2.0mm to 6.0mm. They hold EN 13479, CE approval for structural steel users and a number of society approvals including ABS, BV, GL and LR as standard.
