Surfacing of bronze on steel, cast steel and cast iron.
Joining of copper and its alloys.
Easy to weld with a stable arc.
Good wear resistance for metal to metal friction.
Repairs of bronze bells.
Machine repair: surfacing of bearing areas and shafts.
Joining of copper, bronze and brass plates, flanges, tubes.
Hardness: 100 - 120 HB
Clean the parts well.
For the first layer start with a low amperage to minimize dilution.
Operate with a circular movement in order for the weld metal to cool down slowly.
Use the maximum amperage.
For butt welds: root gap sufficiently wide to avoid convex beads.
Preheat temperature: Tin bronze: 150-200 °C (300-400 °F), Brass: 200-300 °C (400-570 °F).
