Properties and Applications
Flux cored wire for submerged arc hardfacing of parts subjected to metal-to-metal friction (adhesion) and medium degree impacts. SHF 604 flux is used together with this wire for hardfacing applications. Weld metal is easily machinable by chip forming. Interpass temperature should not exceed 250°C, during welding.

Typical Applications : Suitable for hardfacing rollers, rolling mills, caterpillar track rolls and tracks, sprockets, shafts, crane rollers and idler and mine car wheels.
