SMAW - Shielded-Metal Arc Welding
Blueshield gouging carbon electrodes are designed especially for
the air carbon-arc metal removal process.
Blueshield gouging electrodes offer:
• Long electrode life
• Groove uniformity
• Excellent arc stability
• Noumerous sizes
• Superior metal removal rates
New Blueshield Pro hollow-core gouging electrodes
SMAW
Blueshield Gouging Carbon Electrodes
Use Blueshield carbon gouging electrodes with any type of gouging torches
connected to a DC power supply and compressed air source.
Applications
• Edge preparation for groove joints (especially J- and U-grooves)
• Remove discontinuities from weld deposits
• Remove entire welds when structural repairs or modifications are necessary
Blueshield carbon gouging electrodes contain a precisely formulated blend of carbon
and graphite that produces very efficient metal removal performance.
The Blueshield Pro carbon gouging electrodes’ unique hollow design allows the
electric current to be directed to and concentrated on the outside diameter of the rod.
This allows for very efficient removal of metal, resulting in even higher productivity.
DC Copperclad Pointed Electrodes
A standard all-purpose gouging electrode. Controlled copper coating improves conductivity providing more efficient, cooler,
operation and helps maintain electrode diameter at the point of the arc. When using pointed gouging carbons, the user will have
about three inches of stub loss.
DC Copperclad Jointed Electrodes
Eliminates stub loss and provides continuous electrode feed especially for semi-automatic and automatic torches. Machined at each
end to provide male and female fittings.

Helpful Hints
When calculating electrode consumption, the following
information may be helpful:
• For every inch of electrode consumed, the user will
get 8’’ of groove when making a gouge that is equal
in depth to the diameter of the carbon. The gouged
width will be about 1/8’’ wider than the diameter of
the carbon electrode being used.
C-8

Safety Reminders
• Use a welding helmet (shade 11 and up) such as the Weldline Chameleon.
• Use additional skin protection products such as Blueshield gloves & garments.
• Wear ear protection against noise and to protect ears from sparks.
• Avoid inhaling breathing smoke and fumes.
• Remove all combustibles and flammables from work area.
• Never substitute oxygen for compressed air.

Brazing
Brazing is universally used in the industry because it’s
economical, easy to do, and produces strong welds and
leak-tight joints.
Brazing is a joining process whereby a non-ferrous filler metal or
alloy is heated to a melting temperature (above 450°C / 800°F)
and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by
capillary action.
If a silver alloy is used, brazing can be referred to as “Silver
Brazing”.
In another similar usage, brazing is the use of a bronze or brass
filler rod coated with flux, together with an oxy-acetylene torch,
to join pieces of steel. The American Welding Society prefers
to use the term “Braze Welding” for this process, as capillary
attraction is not involved (unlike the prior silver brazing example).
Basic brazing procedure:
1. Determine joint spacing
2. Choose the right brazing alloy
3. Eliminate grease and contaminants using cleaner and
stainless steel brush
4. Add flux
5. Position parts carefully
Brazing
6. Turn on the heat!
7. Clean joints

Thoria is a radioactive oxide. When welding is to be performed in confined spaces for prolonged periods or if electrode grinding dust might be ingested,
special ventilation precautions should be considered.

AWS
CLASS
DESCRIPTION
ER4043
Alloy 4043 is one of the most widely used
general-purpose aluminum welding alloys
containing silicon to lower the melting point
and improve fluidity and wetting action.
Blueshield Crystal 4043 produces a bright weld
with very good appearance and
offers excellent resistance to weld cracking.
ER5356
ER4047
Alloy 5356 is the most popular of the high-magnesium
welding filler metal alloys and is typically chosen for its
relatively high strength and good feedability characteristics.
Blueshield Crystal 5356 has high compatibility
with many base metals and is suitable for
many applications, but is not recommended for
elevated temperature service above 65°C (150°F).
Alloy 4047 was originally designed for brazing and
has a higher silicon content than alloy 4043 which increases
fluidity, reduces shrinkage and minimizes hot-cracking.
Blueshield Crystal 4047 can sustain relatively elevated service
temperatures and is often used in the automotive industry.

performance the industry has come to expect of our Blueshield
carbon steel FCAW wires. These wires offer a distinctive,
smooth, spray-type metal transfer, self-peeling slag, minimal
spatter and superior weld bead profile.
Blueshield 650P, 652P, 654P and Lexal 2209P stainless steel
wires offer enhanced all-position welding characteristics,
specifically designed for vertical-up and overhead welding.
These wires are characterized by their fast-freezing slag,
spray-type metal transfer, easy-slag removal, minimal spatter
and a smooth flat bead profile when welding in the vertical-up
and overhead positions.
