Approximate number of rods per 1 lb. pack for each diameter:

  • 1/16" (1.6mm): 26 - 30

  • 1/8" (3.2mm): 8 - 10
  • 5/32" (4.0mm): 6 - 8


RG60 provides a higher tensile strength plain Carbon Mild Steel for general purpose oxy-acetylene welding of Mild and Low Carbon Steels.

It is bare (non Copper-coated) but due to higher levels of manganese and silicon, no flux is required.

RG60 has been designed to provide porosity-free welds and higher tensile strength (as welded).

The higher levels of Manganese and Silicon increase fluidity of the weld pool, creating a smoother appearance and resulting in minimal post-weld grinding.

Tensile strength: 67,000 psi (specs call for 60,000 minimum).

Elongation is 25%.
