All-State Corecast 8600
Continuous flux cored DC reverse composite electrode for joining cast iron to itself or mild steel. Use with 98% Argon/2%Oxygen shielding gas.Machinable.
Typical Tensile Properties
|As Welded||12 %||73 ksi|
For best results,set wire amperage and adjust voltage for smoothest operation.Use 98% Argon 2% Oxygen shielding gas. Wire will also operate in the short circuiting mode or with pulse arc,and under these conditions,may be usable out-of-position.Observe the usual precautions on preheat,joint preparation,and welding technique used with other cast iron welding processes.Light peening of each bead will reduce internal stresses and minimize cracking tendencies.|
