GEMET 501

Ferrous electrode for non-machinable welding of cast iron.

APPLICATION :

Specially designed electrode suitable for welding of cast iron to cast iron and for joining cast iron to carbon or low alloy steels. For surfacing of cast iron, repair or large size castings. Best suited for rusty, corroded and greasy castings.

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Economical electrode with good bonding properties.
  • Soft stable arc with good crack resistivity

APPLICATION TECHNIQUE :

Clean the weld area properly. Recommended to use DC reverse polarity and lowest possible current. Weld with short arc and slight weaving if necessary. Peen the deposit after every pass.

Alloy Basis : Fe, Si, C.

UTS : 55-60 Kg/mm.

Welding current : AC/DC (+)
