A rutile coated electrode depositing austenitic / ferritic stainless steel weld metal with a ferrite content of approximately FN 40. The weld metal exhibits excellent tolerance to dilution from dissimilar and difficult to weld materials without hot cracking.
MECHANICAL PROPERTIES (RANGE)
Difficult to weld steels e.g. high carbon harden able tool, die and spring steels, 13 % Mn steels, free cutting steels, high temperature steels, dissimilar joints between stainless and high carbon steels, surfacing metal-to-metal areas, hot working tools, furnace components.
HARDNESS OF THE UNDILUTED WELD METAL : 180 - 240 Brinell
• Spray type metal transfer.
• Smooth weld bead, electrode does not get red hot.
• Easy de-slagging.
• Very low spatter loss, soft arc.
• Excellent weld ability for all steels.
• Clean weld area.
• Bevel heavy sections.
• Use recommended current.
• Dry the electrodes at 200°C / 2 hrs.
• Use short arc.
Good resistance to sulphurous gases at high temperature. Good resistance to wet corrosion upto approximately 300°C.
