SIA-Mo is a special stainless steel electrode depositing a stainless steel weld metal having 19Cr - 9Ni - 6Mn - 0.4Mo. The weld metals highly crack resistant and its unique mechanical properties are maintained even when welding steels of different compositions. It is ideally suited for welding HSLA steels like armour steels etc. in cast or rolled forms. It is also useful for welding materials of similar composition, austenitic manganese steel and for producing stainless steel overlay for corrosion resistance, buffer layers for hard facing and work hardenable deposits.
1. Redry the electrodes at 200-250 C for one hour.
2. Use short arc, lowest current possible.
|Current Range (Amps)||220-260||160-200||120-160||80-110||60-80|
