Cast iron welding electrode

AMA 1094NiFe

AWS/ASME SFA-5.15: E NiFe-Cl
DIN 8573 : E NiFe-1 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). The weld metal has a low coefficient thermal expansion and therefore little shrinkage. It feature higher strength properties than pure nickel weld metal and therefore preferred for joining nodular cast iron, white and black heart malleable cast iron and austenitic nodular cast iron or for joining these materials to components made of steel, copper and nickel materials. Easy arc striking, stable arc, finely-rippled bead surface are some properties of this electrode. weld metal is machinable. Weld short beads.
