GEMET 5042

Outstanding cast iron electrode nickel-iron depositing for weld metal

CHARACTERISTICS :

Specially formulated electrode depositing high nickel content in the weld metal. The electrode can be used on AC or on DC power source.
The electrode coating controls penetration and prevent excessive dilution. The deposited weld metal is machinable and free from defects.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

Gear boxes, pump housings, pump rotors, compressors, valves, cylinder covers, motor beds, can also be used for welding alloyed cast iron.

PRECAUTIONS :

  • Clean thoroughly weld area.
  • Vee out cracks if present.
  • Preheat to 100-150oC when maximum machinability is required.
  • Deposit short stringer beads 25 mm to 75 mm in length.
  • Peen lightly to remove stresses.
