Cast iron welding electrode

AMA 1094Ni

AWS/ASME SFA-5.15: E Ni-Cl
DIN 8573 : E Ni BG–22


Electrode having a pure nickel core wire, designed for the welding of cast iron without or with low preheats (up to 300 C max). For repairing cracked or worn casting or joining cast iron parts to components made of steel, copper and nickel materials. Easy arc striking, stable arc, finely-rippled bead surface . Weld metal is machinable. Weld short beads (approx. 30 to 50 mm long). For reducing weld residual stresses hammer peen welds before cooling.
