Premium Nickel Electrode for Welding Cast Iron – Maximum Machinability
DESCRIPTION: Premium electrode for welding thin sections of cast iron. Can be used either AC or DC. Useful in all positions.
GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS: Specially formulated coating gives a pulsed arc for low temperature welding of grey cast irons. When properly applied, the arc will penetrate surface skin and contaminants to produce a porosity free weld. Stress cracks are almost always avoided and welds are machinable.
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS: Low temperature welding of cast iron in all positions. Repairing breaks and cracks in engine blocks, gear housings, machine bases and frames. Ideal for filling holes and building up worn or missing sections which must be machined to final dimension after welding. Also for joining cast iron to steel, iron, stainless steel, copper, Monel etc.
