Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing weld wire

FUSION W

FUSION™ 600 W, a hardfacing electrode, is an excellent option for carbon and low alloy steels, cast iron and manganese, bonding readily to all. It is intended for applications with impact and abrasion resistant qualities, being the optimum choice to the combination. The deposits take a high polish, contributing the wear qualities, and applies well out of position.

Fusion

FUSION™ W is a Flux cored hardsurfacing wire containing 50-60% tungsten carbides. It has a combination of toughness and wear resistance, due to the heterogeneous weld metal composed of tungsten carbides distributed in a hard and very tough matrix. Unlike many others, this welding wire has exceptional wetting characteristics. It preforms best in applications that endure extreme abrasion combined with corrosion.

Common applications include:
