filler rod
Explanation:
And this is what this is:
FILLER RODS

The term filler rod refers to a filler metal used in gas welding, brazing, and certain electric welding processes in which the filler metal is not a part of the electrical circuit. The only function of the filler rod is to supply filler metal to the joint. Filler
rod comes in wire or rod form that is often referred to as “welding rod.”
As a rule, filler rods are uncoated except for a thin film resulting from the manufacturing process. Filler rods for welding steel are often copper-coated to protect them from corrosion during storage. Most rods are furnished in 36-inch lengths and a wide variety of di-meters, ranging from 1/32 to 3/8 inch. Rods for
weld-ing cast iron vary from 12 to 24 inches in length and are frequently square, rather than round. You determine the rod diameter for a given job by the thickness of the metal you are joining. Except for rod diameter, you select the filler rod based on the specifications of the metals being joined.
