Mild Steel Plate (Zn Plating) + Copper

Weldability of the material and electrode material (guideline)

Weldability Very bad
Upper Electrode Cu-Cr-Zr (Equivalent to RWMA-2)
Lower Electrode W100% (Equivalent to RWMA-13)
Mo100%
Special Note Not enough welding strength.
Generating a stick instead of a nugget.
Coating has a chance to melt or burn.
