ESAB Welding Handbook (8th edition) is a comprehensive and extensive book on the consumables for automatic and manual welding. This manual is handy both for the fabricators and welders. Furthermore, the handbook consists of topics like types of filler metals consumables for mild steels, low-alloyed steels cast iron and many other alloys. It also explains some of the special products and how to store them safely. The book is a quick guide for both fabricators and welders in selecting welding consumables. It also reveals packaging and spool types.

According to the author, the manual is valuable for welders and fabricators while deciding consumables before going for welding. In this case, selecting consumables is necessary for durable welds. All the metals have different materials and properties. That’s why each metal requires a special type of consumables. For instance, consumables for mild steels, low-alloyed steels, stainless and high-alloyed steels, aluminum alloys, nickel-based alloys, copper-based alloys, cast iron, dissimilar materials, and hard-facing are different.
