Basic type, high recovery (235%) hardfacing electrode for depositing primary and eutectic Cr, Nb, Mo, W and V-carbides in austenitic matrix. Suitable for hardfacing of parts subjected to heavy abrasion with moderate impact and service temperatures up to 600°C. The typical transverse cracks occuring in such a hard metal is not suitable for applications where impact and shock conditions prevail. Wear coefficient of 1 layer deposit is 0,3% with SiO2. The weld metal is machinable only by grinding. It has a quiet and regular fusion. Weld with long arc length and shall not be welded more than 4 layers. Possible to use with both DC and AC.
Typical Applications: Suitable for use in crushing and screening plants, sinter plant parts, wear bars and plates, scraper bars, blast furnace charging systems, cement furnaces, bucket teeth and lips.
