Electrodes that have been degraded by moisture will not deposit quality welds as well as a dry rod will. Rods that have absorbed too much moisture may lead to weld cracking and porosity. Other welding characteristics such as arc performance may be affected as well.
A low hydrogen rod coating that has absorbed moisture may result in a weld with hydrogen-induced cracking. Especially in harder metals with a yield strength of 80,000 psi and higher.
Harder metals are inherently more brittle to begin with. Using wet, low hydrogen rods potentially increases the brittleness in the weld. This may cause under surface cracking and porosity which is only detectable by X-ray testing or destructive testing.
In addition, it may cause surface cracking, surface porosity, excessive slag fluidity, difficulty in removing slag and a rough weld surface.
Welding rods are an essential part of your welding kit. If you want to store them properly, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind.
If you have used or have recently opened a rod box, it’s important to clean it before you use it again for new ones. This will ensure that your new rods remain undamaged by rust and dirt on the inside of the box.
Store your Welding rods away from direct sunshine and water leaks to maintain their integrity. I like to hang them on nails in area with no window and limited light exposure. Make sure rain droplets or leaks won’t reach them.
Once you opene the box, store them with their lids facing up so that they don’t lose their shape over time.
After you’ve stored welding rods in a closed box, check them each two weeks to see if some rust or dirt accumulation appear inside of the box. If they’re more than halfway rusted through (roughly 2/3rds), throw them away.
If the rods become clogged with dirt, clean them and place in a separate container.
You can store welding rods for up to two years if they’re kept away from direct sunlight without any damage due to rust or dirt.
