Hardness: HB 210

MSDS

NiFe Cl
PL 8992

Nickel 55
All position electrode especially suited for high-strength welding of cast iron, nodular iron, and high-phosphorous irons and steels. Excellent abrasion resistance.
Tensile: 55,000 psi

MSDS

Bi-Metal
PL 8981

Non-overheating Bi-Metal Cored
High effi ciency “Bi-metal” cored electrode for high strength welding of cast iron without overheating. Excellent machinability as special double-metal core wire creates a narrow heat affected zone.

Hardness: HB 200

MSDS

Bi-Metal
PL 8998

24% Elongation Bi-Metal Cored
The ultimate combination of high strength and ductility for joining and multi-layer build-up of cast iron. Special “Bi-metal” core wire prevents overheating and reduces stub loss while offering an unbelieveable, yet tested, 24% elongation.
Tensile: 80,000 psi
Hardness: HB 200
Elongation: 24%

MSDS

Tri-Metal
PL 8226

Tri-metal Electrode
Heavily “copper clad” tri-metal electrode for welding cast iron without risk of overheating.
Tensile: 80,000 psi

MSDS

Color Match
PL 8983

Nickel-Copper for Cast Iron
Nickel-copper electrode excellent for general cast iron repair with better color match than Nickel or Nickel Iron alloys. Minimum order quantity may apply.
Tensile: 65,000 psi
Elongation: 15%

Nickel Free
PL 8984

Low Hardness Nickel Free
Nickel-free electrode neutralizes contaminants in the dirtiest, most diffi cult-to-weld cast iron for porosity-free welding. Specially formulated to provide deposits much softer than conventional nickel-free products.
