Job Task Name

Weld mild steel

Comments

Mild steel welders are not exposed to levels of water-soluble nickel and hexavalent chromium experienced by stainless steel welders. The common stick welding (also called manual metal arc or shielded metal arc welding) causes higher concentrations of fume than other welding methods, e.g., MIG welding and TIG welding.
