Gemini Flux Core Wire 1.6mm

Hard Facing Flux Core Wire 1.6mm

Gemini H61-O is a self-shielded, flux-cored wire that deposits an extra high chromium carbide alloy steel. It can be used to overlay surfaces subjected to extremely severe abrasion. It can also be used where high temperature wear resistance is required.

Stress-relief cracking will readily occur with this product. This cracking is not
detrimental to the wear properties of the deposit and provides some degree
of stress relief for the weld metal. Faster cooling rates result in a finer, more
uniform stress relief cracking pattern
