Lincore® 15CrMn

Flux-Cored Self-Shielded (FCAW-S) Wire

Austenitic manganese alloys, producing tough, high-strength deposits that will workharden under impact. Used in applications with high impact and low abrasion like striking or pounding.

DETAILS

Austenitic manganese alloys, producing tough, high-strength deposits that will workharden under impact. Primarily used for joining, repairing or building up manganese steel parts that need to be joined together or joining manganese to carbon steel, including railroad frogs, impact hammers, rotors and rock crusher rolls. Deposits thickness is unlimited and can be flame cut. Used in applications with high impact and low abrasion.

Features

  • Can be used in open arc mode for joining austenitic manganese steel to carbon steel, low alloy steel, austenitic , or stainless steel
  • Unlimited layers with proper preheat and interpass temperatures and procedures
  • Can be used as a build-up layer before capping with abrasion resistant alloys

Typical Applications

  • Bar, Bucket, Crush, Cut
  • Drag, Dredge, Hammer, Mix
  • Open Hearth, Plate, Power Generation, Pump, Rail
  • Roll, Screen, Shovel, Teeth, Wheel

Welding Positions

  • Flat/Horizontal

Shielding Gas

NOTES

Note
As with all austenitic manganese welding products, interpass temperatures should be limited to 260°C (500°F) maximum.
A stringer bead, or at most, a slight weave is recommended to limit heat build-up. Excessive heat build-up causes manganese carbide precipitation that damages the toughness of austenitic manganese.
