Lastek 211

Very thin tungsten carbide deposits

Electrode with a sintered carbide core and an extruded coating that guarantees a very thin and very large deposit with a superior abrasion resistance.

Machining is only possible with diamond tools.

One electrode of diameter 4 mm (5/32″) covers an area of 100 cm² (16 square inches) and welds without interruption for about 6 minutes.

Specifications & Usage


Repairing tools in mining and cement industry, augers, mixer blades, furrowing shovel, rasp bars.

Hardness: 64 - 70 HRC.


Keep an arc length of about 3 to 5 mm (0.12 to 0.20 inch), with the electrode almost perpendicular to the work piece.

For maximum wear resistance apply a base layer of Lastek 27.

If grinding is necessary, use a diamond tool.
