HF-425 x 2.5mm
Classification DIN 8555 : E10-UM-60-GRPZ
Synthetic rutile coated hardfacing electrode with high recovery ( 160% ). For applications subject
to abrasive wear by minerals, combined with medium shocks and compression.
Austenitic matrix containing Cr carbides. Deposit resists corrosion due to the high chromium
content ( 32% ) as well as heat up to 200°C.
Easy flow, self releasing slag.
Maximum hardness, as deposited, is reach in 3 layers
For applications where resistance to high abrasion combined with a good
resistance to shock is required. Only machinable by grinding.
For excavating and crushing equipment, surfacing of endless screws, mixer blades, pump bodies for abrasive materials, excavator teeth, crushing installations for minerals, concrete pumps, ore crushing, ploughshares, screw presses for the brick manufacturing industries.

Redrying, if necessary, 1h/250°C. Guide electrode almost vertically with a short arc.
In case of hardfacing highly alloyed steels like stainless steels, it is recommended to apply a cushion
layer with 18/8Mn. [AS-300]
