Multipurpose type stainless steel electrode with very high deposition rate.
Ideal for joining stainless steel of similar composition, austenitic manganese steels to themselves and to carbon steels, heat resistant steels, heat treatable steels, armour plates, Wear resistant parts to earthmoving and stone working machines, buffer layers on a variety of steels, etc.
Typical hardfacing application are shell bucket lips, clutch lugs, conveyors, crusher cones, crusher hammers, crusher jaws, crusher lugs, crusher mantles, crusher rolls, crusher teeth, dipper teeth, drag line bucket lips and teeth, grizzlies grousers, shovel lips, pulverizer ploughs and rolls, sizing screens, rail ends and crossings, rail frogs and switches, hot working tools.
Ultimate Tensile Strength: 60.0 kgf/mm2
% Elongation: 35.0
Hardness (As Welded): 200 BHN
Work hardens: up to 500 BHN under impact
Re-dry the electrode at 250-300°C for one hour before use. Clean weld area free of all surface contamination. Use as low a current as possible, short arc and minimize weaving.
