Open-arc flux cored wire, which is developed for hardfacing of parts subjected of impact high compressive stresses and metal-to-metal wear. Provides martensitic weld metal with high hardness. Weld metal can be machined by grinding or by diamond cutting bits. It is recommended to apply a buffer layer with FCW 30 on base metals with high carbon and low weldability, before hardfacing. The deposit is heat treatable and forgeable.
Typical Applications : Suitable for hardfacing of rope and cable sheaves, bed knives, steel mill rollers, crane wheels, forging dies.
