Work Hardening Wires

Work Hardening Wires

Hardfacing Work Hardening Wires. These are for Austenitic or Martensitic alloys which include work-hardening steels, such as manganese and stainless. This groups properties are generally soft when welded and hardens only after the weld metal is worked. They have high impact properties, good heat and thermal shock resistance and moderate abrasion resistance and particularly good for metal to metal wear. The stainless steel family is good for corrosion resistance. You can apply martensitic and austenitic products in unlimited layers unless the manufacturer specifies otherwise.

Applications include joining for joining dissimilar and difficult to weld steels, buffer layers, impact loaded parts. Can be in some situations suitable for ductile buffer layers.
