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 300-350 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. Gives very smooth and clean weld bead surfaces, slag removal is very easy and generally slag is self releasing.
Typical Applications : Hardfacing of track rollers, idlers, couplings, piston rod ends, earth moving equipment, rolls, mills, etc. the alloying effect to the flux depends, to a large degree, on the weld parameters chosen.
