Selectrode’s full range of wear repair alloys covers the full spectrum of alloy types from Cobalt based electrodes through and including fine diameter flux and metal cored semi automatic spooled wires.
The Cobalt based electrodes are unique to the market due to their ability to weld easily not only on direct current welders but also large and small alternating current machines. The arc transfer is a spray type which creates weld metal flow that is exceptional. The slag is totally self releasing yielding weld deposits that are extremely fine rippled and uniform. Our wide range of cobalt alloy types includes grade numbers: 1, 6, 12, 21 and 25 in both flux coated electrodes and bare torch/Tig alloys.
Similarly our range of tungsten carbide overlay products is also extensive. We manufacture tubular carbide filled electrodes and torch rods with tungsten carbide fill contents ranging from 37% up to and including 60%. Tool steels are a major component of our wear facing group with all of the hardening types covered in both stick electrode and Tig versions. Chromium carbide electrodes of all types head up the group of common repair alloys. This selection which also includes manganese and nickel manganese electrode grades that are used for wear applications ranging from sliding abrasive wear resistance through work hardening applications.
A very special and proprietary range of overlay electrodes is our large diameter low operating amperage tubular electrodes that offer numerous operational benefits. These electrodes manufactured in diameters up to and including ½” (13mm) can be deposited at unusually low amperages. The low amperage factor totally minimizes warpage and distortion on the parts being repaired. Deposition rates are dramatically higher than conventional solid core wire electrodes and closely approach the rates witnessed with semi automatic tubular wires. Rounding out the Selectrode wearfacing line is the fine diameter cored wire range of Mig wires. This group includes lower hardness buildup chemistries and also manganese bearing work hardening types. The higher hardness level is headed up by our very popular chromium carbide version. These spooled Mig wires are all manufactured in fine diameters that are usable in automatic feeding apparatus for high speed overlays at very low amperages.
In addition to the standard products, we also offer unique and special products, including:
- All hardness levels of electrodes
- Carbide and Wear Resistant Torch Alloys
- .045″ (1.2 mm) and 1/16 (1.6 m) diameter flux cored MIG wires
