FILLER METAL Alloy 55

FILLER METAL Alloy 55 is used for TIG and MIG welding of cast iron. This filler metal is extensively employed to overlay the cast iron rolls. It is also used to repair the castings. The weld metal of FILLER METAL Alloy 55 is harder than that of FILLER METAL Alloy 99. However, the machining can be accomplished by u sing carbide tipped tools. A preheat and interpass temperature of 350ºF (175ºC) minimum is recommended during welding, without which the weld and heat affected zones could develop cracks.

FILLER METAL Alloy 99

FILLER METAL Alloy 99 is used for TIG and MIG welding of cast iron. This wire is extensively employed to repair gray iron castings. It can also be used for overlay and buildup. However, dilution from the casting influences the mechanical properties of the metal. The welds are easily machinable. A preheat and interpass temperature of 350ºF (175ºC) minimum is recommended during welding.

FILLER METAL Alloy 59

FILLER METAL Alloy 59 is a Ni-Cr-Mo alloy with an extra low carbon and silicon content. This wire has excellent corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength.FILLER METAL Alloy 59 is used to weld low carbon Ni-Cr-Mo alloys to themselves and for dissimilar welding of alloys such as C-276, 22, 625, and other high alloy steels such as 6Mo stainless, 825, and even common grades of stainless steels. Some base metals that FILLER METAL Alloy 59 are used on are ASTM and ASME B and SB 574, 575, 619, 622 and 626

FILLER METAL Alloy 60

FILLER METAL Alloy 60 is used for TIG, or MIG welding of nickel copper alloys (ASTM B127, B163, B164, and B165 UNS Number N04400). This filler metal can be used for MIG overlay on steel after a first layer with nickel FILLER METAL Alloy 61. Dissimilar welding applications include joining Monel alloys to Nickel 200 and copper-nickel alloys. This product is widely used in marine applications because of its good resistance to the corrosive effects of seawater and brackish waters.

FILLER METAL Alloy 61

FILLER METAL Alloy 61 is used for TIG, MIG, and SAW welding of nickel 200 or 201. This filler metal is also employed for overlaying on steel as well as repairing cast iron castings. It can also be used for dissimilar joints between nickel or nickel alloys to stainless or ferritic steels
