Stoody XHC combines excellent weldability with a high deposition rate. It is a solid core electrode with an extruded graphitic coating containing the alloying elements.
- Deposits are highly resistant to both sliding and grinding abrasion, but they are not machinable or forgeable.
- Stoody XHC retains good wear resistance up to 1000F (538C) and it bonds well with carbon, low alloy, and manganese steels.
