Electrodes - Hardfacing PLATINUM 943
Due to the nodular shape of the complex carbides, Platinum 943 deposits are capable of withstanding heavier impact levels than standard chromium-carbide electrodes. Typical applications include; buckets, lips, screws, hammers, teeth, crushing equipment, etc. Typical hardness 60-65 HRC (1st layer). Supplied in a 1kg re-usable convenience pack to keep electrodes in good condition.

> High-performance for long wear / service life
> Versatile, offers both exceptional abrasion resistance and good impact strength
> Ideal for earthmoving & ground-engaging equipment
> Typical hardness 60-65 HRC (1st layer)
> Capable of withstanding heavier impact levels than standard chromium-carbide electrodes
> Extremely hard, abrasion resistant Chromium 22% + Niobium (CrNb) 7% deposit
> Ideal for hard surfacing applications where resistance to high or extreme abrasion (in particular sliding abrasion) and moderate to heavy impact are required.
> Typical applications include; buckets, lips, screws, hammers, teeth, crushing equipment, etc.
> NOT recommended for: metal-to-metal wear
> Polarity: DC+ or AC+ (electrode +)
> Typical current range: 3.2mm 115-140A / 4.0mm 140-185A
> Positions: Horizonal / Flat
> Recommended stick out 15-20mm
> To prevent dilution of hardness, avoid high current
> Max 3 layers
> Minimum recommended OCV (open circuit voltage): 55V*
*Most inverter welding machines have OCV of 55V or more. Some older transformer machines may have OCV of less than 55V and may not be ideal for running these electrodes. OCV rating will normally be shown on machine data plate, indicated by the symbol "Uo"
