Stick (SMAW) | ED021993

Ideal for building up on carbon and low alloy steels. Use as an underbase for carbon steel parts prior to hardfacing build-up applications.

DETAILS

Ideal for building up on carbon and low alloy steels. Use as an underbase for carbon steel parts prior to hardfacing. Great compressive strength under heavy loading. Deposits are generally crack free, machinable and can be flame cut. Deposit thickness is unlimited.Use as an underbase for carbon steel parts prior to hardfacing build-up appliacation.

Features

  • Use on low alloy steels
  • Deposit is unlimited layers
  • Build-up with moderate hardness to resist shock and metal-to-metal wear, as in rolling and sliding
  • Can be used as underbase for other hardfacing deposits or as final overlay on parts to be machined or forged
