Weld metal with exceptionally high resistance to abrasion at room temperature as well as at elevated temperatures.
LoTherme-605M is low heat input electrode specially designed for hardfacing applications on machine parts subject to severe erosion, abrasion and moderate impact.
LoTherme-605M is ideally suited for surfacing applications where resistance to erosion, heavy abrasion with moderate impact, specially at elevated temperatures are important factors. The weld metal retains hardness up to 550 C and resists scaling up to 1000 C. Typical applications include: press screws, conveyor screws, dredger, bucket teeth and lips, tube mill and rolling mill guides, wire straightening rolls, agricultural machinery, boring tools, pug mill knife.
Re-dry the electrodes at 250 C for an hour before use. Clean the weld area. Allow each bead to cool down before depositing subsequent beads. While surfacing medium and high carbon steels use LoTherme-352 for buffer layers to avoid chances of cracking. Do not use more than two layers of LoTherme-605M at a time. For heavy build-up alternate LoTherme-352 or LoTherme-607 with two layer deposits of LoTherme-605M.
