Premium AC/DC reverse,all-position electrode for heavy sections of cast iron and ductile iron. For general maintenance welding requiring high strength, machinable deposits. Good color match. Excellent for ferrous metals high in phosphorus content.
Typical Tensile Properties
|Condition||Elongation||Hardness (BHN)||Tensile Strength||Yield Strength|
|As Welded||4-12 %||200-300 BHN||up to 80 ksi||up to 60 ksi|
Preheating to 600°F(316°C) is recommended to decrease stresses and increase tensile strength and ductility. Removing all foreign material by grinding or other means and then searing the iron with a highly oxidizing torch flame will help to eliminate porosity. When welding cast iron to steels,the procedure should be the same as if two pieces of cast iron are being joined together.|
