NI-ROD Welding Electrode is used for shielded-metal-arc welding of gray, ductile, and malleable cast irons. It is also used for joints between cast irons and carbon steel or low-alloy steel. The electrode is particularly useful for thin sections and for joints to be machined. NI-ROD welding electrode can be operated in all welding positions. Power supply: direct current, electrode positive is preferred although alternating current can be used. This datasheet provides information on composition and tensile properties. It also includes information on joining. Filing Code: Ni-490. Producer or source: Inco Alloys International Inc.
