SIA(Rutile) is an electrode depositing 18Cr-8Ni-5Mn weld metal. Ideally suited for joining and surfacing applications to enhance resistance to impact and abrasion. Ideally suited for joining austenitic manganese steel to carbon steel, low alloy steel, etc., and also for buffer layers on a variety of steels.
1. Ensure the electrodes are dry. Re-dry the electrodes at 200-250°C for one hour.
2. Use short arc and minimum heat input.
