Visit your local Meritus Gas Partners location for a customized filler metal to suit your welding application.
What is MIG? MIG stands for metal inert gas. In stick welding the flux on the electrode melts and forms a gas to shield the puddle from the atmosphere. The atmosphere has hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and other gases that will cause weld defects if allowed to get into the weld pool.

Our partners offer a huge selection of welding rods from industry leaders. What is the perfect welding rod for your job? When welding steel or iron, the most common used rods are carbon based rods. 6010, 7010, maybe 8010. These are fast freeze rods that are basically the same in characteristics and function. They go up in ratings from 60,000 to 80,000 pounds in tensile strength and are all position rods. These are AC rods which are the most common current today in America. There are some DC rods that are available like 6011 and 6013. These rods are good for fusing basic iron components together like farm equipment, structural steel, pipe welding, shipyards, shop work, etc.
