Stick Electrode 50 lb. Box

Wearshield® BU

Stick (SMAW) Electrode

Ideal for building up on carbon and low alloy steels. Use as an underbase for carbon steel parts prior to hardfacing.

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.

Features

  • Use on mild and low alloy steels.
  • Unlimited layers with proper preheat, interpass temperatures and procedures.
  • Build-up with moderate hardness to resist shock and metal-to-metal wear, as in rolling and sliding.
