Our unique, Astro Tungsten Carbide Electrode consumable has crushed or spherical carbides in a 6mm tube high grade nickel alloy matrix and binder. The dense, wear resistant properties of the finished surfacing are assured, by maintaining both the ratio and combination of carbide sizes throughout the length of the rod.
Electrode For Utmost Abrasion Resistance (also available in floppy rod for oxy)
Astro’s tungsten carbide can be used under the most severe conditions in many industries to achieve longer life against abrasion, less down time and to serve as a protective surface which can be rebuilt again and again when necessary.
Oil industry - On stabilisers, drill strings, bits and finishing tools
Dredging - On cutter teeth, dragging teeth and pump castings
Cement and brick- On augers, extruder and feed screws, deflection cones, pump rings and liners

ARC Welding Procedures:
As with all surfacing products, the removal of any scale, rust or oxidation from the base material by machining or grinding is essential.
The thickness of each layer should not exceed 3mm. (maximum 2 layers, 6mm).
