An electric current, in the form of both alternating modern-day or direct modern-day from a welding energy supply, is used to form an electric arc between the electrode and the metals to be joined. The workpiece and the electrode melts forming a pool of molten steel (weld pool) that cools to shape a joint. As the weld is laid, the flux coating of the electrode disintegrates, giving off vapors that serve as a defensive gas and providing a layer of slag, each of which guard the weld region from atmospheric contamination.
