Solid welding wire for joining dissimilar steel types (stainless steel to carbon steel) and for refacings.
Suitable for welding steel with a high carbon content.
An elevated delta ferrite content in an austenitic structure assures a very high resistance against hot cracking.
Suitable for welding manganese steel, armour steel, spring steel. Refacings that harden by impact load.
Oxidation resistant up to 1150 °C (2100 °F).
Dissimilar welding (stainless steel to steel).
Crack-resistant underlayers for hardfacings.
Refacings where good corrosion resistance or friction resistance is expected and where abrasion resistance is less important.
Welding or repairing cast steel with a high chromium content (1.4762, 1.4085 aso).
Joining difficult to weld steel: in function of the chemical composition and the workpiece section, preheating and slowly cooling down can be necessary.
Avoid any heattreatment at temperatures between 550 °C (1020 °F) and 850 °C (1560 °F) and prevent that heavy welds remain too long in this temperature zone.
