Alloyed and agglomerated flux, which is designed for submerged arc hardfacing of parts subjected to metal to metal friction wear, moderate impart and low stress mineral abrasion. Provides weld metal with 225-300 HB hardness, when used with SW 702 wire electrode. Possible to use in direct current. Hardness and transfer of alloying elements to the weld metal depens on welding parameters used. For instance, optimum welding parameters for 4.00 mm wire electrode are about 600 A, 32 V, 50 cm/min. welding speed. Gives very smooth and clean weld bead surfaces, slag removal is very easy and generally slag is self releasing.
Typical Applications: Suitable for hardfacing of machine gear parts, rails, supports rolls of caterpillars, pulleys, locomotive wheels, table and support rolls in iron and steel industry.
