FLUX CORED WIRE
Inter-Steel stock and supply a range of high quality solutions for wear resistance weld repair and overlay reclamation processes for improved productivity and enhanced equipment durability.
With a wide variety of wear resistant alloys designed to reduce maintenance, the superior welding characteristics of Inter-Steel’s cored wires provide higher deposition rates and consistency over a wide range of welding parameters in open arc, gas shielded or submerged arc processes.
Agglomerated flux is also available to provide a single source of both flux and wire.
A swaged 6mm aluminium stub attached to the gripping end of the 8mm and 12mm electrodes means that Inter-Steel anti-wear electrodes can be used with any type of electrode holder. All grades can be used with either AC or DC current.
A heterogeneous deposit of carbide particles in a tough, less hard matrix gives alloys that combine high abrasion resistance with good impact resistance. Because of the special, moisture resistant flux coating and the relatively low amperage required for the tubular product, the Inter-Steel range is extremely versatile.
The 12mm electrodes may be applied using as low as 195 amps, and for rapid deposition, as high as 440 amps. The unique, completely moisture resistant flux coating, unlike other comparable manual electrodes, has eliminated the problem of moisture pick-up.
Narrow weld beads or wider, smooth deposits can be used on plate edges without the edge burning, giving a very low dilution of the substrate. Metal recovery from the Inter-Steel hard facing electrodes is extremely high; the 12mm diameter has only four stub discards for each kilogram of electrodes.
