GM 209 is a solid stainless steel wire which deposits radiographic quality
ductile weld metal. The weld metal exhibits excellent tolerance to dilution from
dissimilar and difficult-to-weld base material without hot cracking, together
with high strength and very good heat and oxidation resistance. Not
recommended for depositing welds to be PWHT.
? For joining EN 24 and EN 19A steels.
? Medium and high carbon hardenable steels. For e.g. tool steels, shafts,
gear teeth, free cutting steels.
? Dissimilar joints between stainless and high carbon steels.
? Buffer layer prior to hardfacing with chromium carbide deposits, surfacing
of metal-to-metal wear areas, hot working tools.
Good resistance to sulphurous gases at high temperature. Good resistance to
wet corrosion upto approximately 300 o C.
