Open-arc flux cored wire which is designed to give extreme resistance to high stress and gouging abrasion and medium impact even at higher temperatures, up to 450°C. Weld metal deposit is composed of an austenitic matrix and Cr and Nb complex carbides so, will readily stress relief check crack which is not detrimental to abrasion resistance, but decrease impact resistance. Hardfacing shall not exceed 8 mm in heigth. Weld metal is machinable by grinding.
Typical Applications: Hardfacing of grinders and presses in cement and brick industries, concrete pump seats, bucket teeth and lips on bucket-wheel excavators in coal and phosphate mines, brick and clay mill augers, wear plates and screens in the coal industry, bulldozer blades working in sand.
