A SUPER DUPLEX ELECTRODE WITH COPPER FOR WELDING ALLOYS OF SIMILAR COMPOSITION.
GRINOX 2553 E 2553-16.
AWS/SFA 5.4: E 2553-16, BS2926 25.6.2.Cu.R
Grinox 2553 is designed to match similar alloys usually supplied as castings. The addition of copper improves corrosion resistance in sulphuric acid media and also increase strength and wear resistance. The electrode gives matching strength and corrosion resistance in the solution treated condition but can also be used in the as-welded condition. Nitrogen and nickel contents are controlled to give a balanced duplex structure to minimize the risk of cracking, particularly in highly restrained welds.
