RG-60 - Oxy-Acetylene Carbon Steel Welding Rod 

AWS/SFA 5.2 R60 (F-6, A-1)

ASTM A251-66 Class RG60

MIL-R908 Amend. 2 Class A & B

MIL-R5632 Class 2

RG60 is a high strength steel rod which is used for oxyfuel welding on castings, steel plates, structural pipe and shapes with a minimum weld deposit strength of 60 ksi. RG60 conforms to AWS A5.2 R 60.

While this alloy was originally developed and are commonly used for oxyfuel welding, they can be used for TIG welding.

Flux is not needed but, "puddling" of the molten metal will bring any scale or impurities to the surface. Weld on clean base metal to ensure the best results. While this alloy was originally developed and are commonly used for oxyfuel welding, they can be used for TIG welding.

RECOMMENDED OXYACETYLENE PROCEDURE: Bevel cracks or heavy sections where possible. Clean the area to be welded as thoroughly as possible. Use a neutral or slightly reducing flame. The extent of the excess fuel gas is measured by the length of the “streamer” or “feather” of unburned fuel gas visible at the extremity of the inner cone. The “streamer” should measure about 1/8 to 1/4 of the length of the inner cone of the flame. Excessively long “streamers” should be avoided since they may add carbon to the weld metal.

If forehand welding (welding rod precedes the torch flame), distribute the heat and molten weld metal by using opposing oscillating motions of the flame and welding rod. If backhand welding (welding rod is interposed between the flame and molten metal), then there is significantly less manipulation of the flame or welding rod.
