Wearshield® 60

Stick (SMAW)

WEARSHIELD® 60 stick electrode is ideal for extreme abrasion hardfacing applications such as conveyor screws, brick and coke machinery, grader blades and crusher rolls/plates/jaws (Metal-to-Earth (Earth Cutting & Digging) for Extreme Abrasion and Low to Moderate Impact)

DETAILS

WEARSHIELD® 60 stick electrode is ideal for extreme abrasion hardfacing applications but is limited to two layers. Typical applications include conveyor screws, brick and coke machinery, grader blades and crusher rolls/plates/jaws. It can be welded in flat & horizontal positions.

Features

  • Designed to resist severe abrasion
  • It exhibits higher alloy and higher abrasion resistance than Wearshield® ABR, Wearshield® 44 or Wearshield® ME
  • Can be used on carbon, low alloy, stainless, and manganese steels
  • Deposits consist of primary carbides in a matrix of austenite-carbide eutectic
  • Deposits should be limited to two layers

Typical Applications

  • Conveyor Screws
  • grade blades
  • Crusher rolls, plates and jaws
  • Sleeve
  • Brick & coke machinery

Welding Positions

  • Flat/Horizontal

NOTES

Note
⁽¹⁾ Preferred polarity is listed first.
NOTE: The deposit is not machinable or forgeable. Cooling rate does not significantly influence abrasion resistance. Deposit will usually cross check.
If more than two-layer build-up is required, use Wearshield® 15CrMn (preferred), Wearshield® BU or Wearshield® BU30 for the preliminary layer or layers under Wearshield® 60.
On manganese steel, use Wearshield® Mangjet® or Wearshield® 15CrMn as build-up.
Preheat is not generally necessary except to be sure that work is in room temperature range 25° - 45°C (75° - 100°F).
However, preheat of 120° - 200°C (250° - 400°F) may be necessary to prevent heat affected zone cracking on high carbon steel or low alloy steel base metals.
If more than two layers must be used, or if cross checks must be eliminated, preheat to 650°C (1200°F).
Prolonged or repeated heating of manganese steel base metal over 260°C (500°F) can cause embrittlement and spalling.
Avoid base metal embrittlement by: • Limiting the temperature 260°C (500°F) at distances of 13 mm (1/2 in) away from the weld. • Minimizing the time at elevated temperatures.
The correct welding technique is a vertical electrode with a 3.2 - 4.8 mm (1/8 - 3/16 in) arc length. The large ball on the end of the electrode should never touch the puddle. This technique will give a smooth transfer, low spatter and smooth bead.
