NI-ROD FC 55 cored wire is used for flux-cored-arc and submerged-arc welding of gray, malleable, and ductile cast irons. It is also used for surfacing of cast irons and for joining cast irons to various wrought materials such as carbon steels and low-alloy steels. The cored wire combines the desirable features of NI-ROD 55 Welding Electrode with the speed and economy of automatic or semiautomatic welding. Submerged-arc welding with the cored wire is done with INCOFLUX 5 submerged arc flux. This datasheet provides information on composition, hardness, and tensile properties. It also includes information on joining. Filing Code: Ni-538. Producer or source: Inco Alloys International Inc.
