  • New patented Weldcote low manganese electrodes now available with up to 60 percent less emissions compared to current electrodes available.

    KINGS MOUNTAIN, North Carolina – September 2018 – Weldcote Metals Inc., a division of Zika Group, introduces its revolutionary WCM low manganese emission shield metal arc welding electrodes.

    The new patented Weldcote line has a unique flux composition that supplies weld metal with significantly lower manganese content, decreasing manganese vapor emissions by as much as 60 percent in comparison to standard electrodes. Additionally, the new line meets and exceeds the required mechanical properties and the requirements of international standards.  

    “Our low manganese product lines are the answer that the industry has been looking for,” said Joe O'Mera, CEO, Weldcote Metals. “This solution is in response to the increasingly demanding environmental safety regulations that our customers are faced with, while providing the required mechanical properties needed to achieve a superior weld.”

    The WCM low manganese product line is available in three AWS classifications, E-6011, E-6013, E-7018. E-6011 is an all-position AC/DC electrode for deep weld penetration for root passes for welding pipes and general structural welding. E-6013 is an all-position, AC/DC electrode typically used for welding cleaner steel. E-7018 H4R is a low-hydrogen, humidity-resistant, usually DC, all-position, versatile electrode used for used for many metals, including structural, that has the capability of producing more uniform weld metal. All are characterized by stable and smooth arc, easy slag detachability and excellent weld bead appearance.  

    “This product launch is one of several initiatives that will help manufacturers do their jobs better, easier and faster, while positioning Weldcote for future growth that will lead the company to the forefront of the industrial tool industry,” O’Mera added.

    Available in 3/32, 1/8 and 5/32 sizes, the new, low manganese electrodes are packaged in 10-pound, vacuum-sealed, plastic containers. 

    Weldcote Metals was founded by Bill Roland, founding CEO and current president, and John Pandorf, co-founder and CFO, in 2006. Earlier this year, the company announced Zika Group and O’Mera as additional ownership, along with O’Mera being named CEO.
