Welding Consumables

In welding, using the correct consumable, or filler material, ensures a strong bond between two metals. It is one of the four components to a weld along with the metal being welded, the heat source, and the shield from the air. As the metal gets heated to its melting point while being shielded from the air, the consumable is added to the area being joined to produce a single piece of metal. The role of the consumable in arc welding is to not only fill in the seam, but also stabilize the flame of the electric arc.
