Forging die rebuilding flux cored wire
A customized gas shielded wire designed for fabrication of a new die and re-building of worn-out hot forging dies with higher hardness requirements. The deposited weld metal is resistant to heat, metal to metal wear & galling. It is free from cracks, porosities and any other surface defects. The wire has very good welder’s appeal and easy slag detachability.
LOTHERME GS-535 (Spl) wire is suitable for weld-surfacing & reclamation of those forging dies, hot working tools & guides, etc where hardness requirement is on the higher side (>40 HRC).
