Steel and Carbon Steels metal is the most common base metal in the Industry. There are various grade of medium carbon and high carbon steels and they are categorized as per standards. As far repair welding is concerned an electrode should be used of such a metallurgy that is suitable for if not for all, at least majority combinations.
The selection procedure for each category has been considered while formulating a product and accordingly the product range has been made. A detailed procedure for welding is also given for each product so as to get the best benefits.
|o CARBON STEEL|
This is a version of alloy steel. The Cr-Ni steel itself has lot of other combinations purely depending upon the service conditions. Its selection is also done according to the base metal properties as mentioned in AISI. When it comes to selection of welding consumables for repair, versatility is the key word. This is more required in the case of joining of combinations, which is very common in repair welding.
To suit this requirement a healthy range is available to tackle any sort of problem. The selection is made very easy and the results are excellent.
|o STAINLESS STEEL|
Alloy steels, be it high alloy or low alloy, are superior version of steels. Their selection as base metal is done purely on the requirement of the part or machine and they are required to give desired physical as well as chemical properties to the part.
There are different versions of metals available in the category and hence in case of repair and maintenance welding, the most important criteria is versatility of the product along with other service properties. Depending upon the service requirement and Industry, each product is to be selected.
|o ALLOY STEEL / DISSIMILAR METAL|
Cast iron is the most widely used base metal by the Industry, because of its versatility at production stage & economy. Majority of heavy equipments use cast iron as a major base metal. It has different grades and each grade has different metallurgy and grain distribution.
Cast Iron welding is a typical job. A full range is available to tackle any type of cast iron job. A detailed procedure is also mentioned as this becomes very crucial for the successful job completion.
|o NICKEL ALLOYS|
