Wearshield® MI

Stick (SMAW) Electrode | ED022005

Low Alloy steels designed for rebuilding of carbon or low alloy parts used in Metal-to-Metal wear applications, works best in impact applications.

DETAILS

Ideal for building up on carbon and low alloy steels. Use as an underbase for carbon steel parts prior to hardfacing. Great compressive strength under heavy loading. Deposits are generally crack free, machinable and can be flame cut. Deposit thickness is unlimited. Used in Metal-to-Metal wear applications, works best in impact applications.

Features

  • Can be used on carbon and low alloy steel parts
  • Deposit is limited to two layers
  • General purpose electrode, a good compromise for metal-to-metal wear, moderate impact and mild abrasion
  • Deposits tend to cross check
  • Provides a martensitic deposit with considerable retained austenite
