Stick Electrode 50 lb. Box

Wearshield® ME

Stick (SMAW) Electrode

Iron-based chromium carbide alloys designed for applications subject to abrasion accompanied by impact from rock, ore, clay, sand or cement.

DETAILS

Iron-based chromium carbide alloys designed for applications subject to abrasion accompanied by impact from rock, ore, clay, sand or cement, including digging or crusher surfaces or parts that must maintain sharp cutting edges. These products can be applied in multiple layers and may cross check crack. Metal-to-Earth hardfacing products can be used on carbon, low alloy, manganese, stainless and cast iron parts.

Features

  • To be used on carbon and low alloy, austenitic manganese and austenitic stainless steels
  • Provides greater abrasion resistance than Wearshield® ABR or Wearshield® 44
  • Low dilution weld metal provides eutectic mix of chromium carbides and austenite with limited primary carbides
  • To be used on carbon and low alloy, austenitic manganese and austenitic stainless steels

Typical Applications

  • Auger, Bar, Blade, Blower, Bucket, Bulldozer
  • Concrete, Crush, Cut, Drag, Dredge, Hammer
  • Hoist, Kiln, Mine Car, Mix, Pipeline, Plate
  • Plow, Power Generation, Pump, Rail, Roll, Scrape
  • Screen, Shovel, Tamper, Teeth, Tractor, Wheel

Welding Positions

  • Flat/Horizontal
