Welding Gear Details

RP6™ Weldable Rust Preventative Fluid is Lincoln Electric’s innovative solution for rust prevention of ferrous metals. The proprietary oil based fluid can be applied by spray, dip or brush and provides up to six months of indoor corrosion protection. Once applied, RP6 provides an extra layer of protection for materials which will be stored or transported.

​​Expert Tested

The weldability of RP6 has been verified through rigorous internal and external tests. RP6 coated materials were welded and then:

  • Visually Inspected
  • X-Rayed
  • Micro-Etched
  • Hardness Tested
  • Standard Fillet Break Tested
  • Hydrogen Induced Crack Tested
  • Constrained Fillet Break Tested


The results of these tests and various others show that when used correctly, RP6 will not adversely affect the welding process.
