Gas shielded, flux cored hardfacing wire which deposits Co-Cr-W alloy weld metal. Suitable to use in hardfacing of parts subjected to either the single or combined effect of: heavy metal-to-metal wear or abrasion, high temperatures (ranging from 500°C to 900°C) and corrosive environments. Due to its very higher toughness and shock resistance extends its use for service conditions involving mechanical impacts and thermal shocks. Pure argon (I1) shall be used as shielding gas.
Typical Applications: Hardfacing of blades for hot shearing, ingot tong ends, valves and valve seats, nozzles.
