swaged 6 mm aluminium stub attached to the gripping end of the
8 and 12 mm electrodes means that Inter-Weld anti-wear electrodes
can be used with any type of electrode holder. All grades can
be used with either AC or DC current.
A heterogeneous deposit of carbide particles
in a tough, less hard matrix gives alloys that combine high abrasion
resistance with good impact resistance. Because of the special,
moisture resistant flux coating and the relatively low amperage
required for the tubular product, the Inter-Weld range is extremely
The 12 mm electrodes may be applied using
as low as 195 amps, and for rapid deposition, as high as 440 amps.
The unique, completely moisture resistant flux coating, unlike
other comparable manual electrodes, has eliminated the problem
of moisture pick-up.
Narrow weld beads or wider, smooth deposits
can be used on plate edges without the edge burning, giving a
very low dilution of the substrate. Metal recovery from the Inter-Weld
hard facing electrodes is extremely high; the 12 mm diameter has
only four stub discards for each kilogram of electrodes.

to no residual slag means that when multi layers
are required, no chipping of slag covering is needed
special flux coating means no moisture pick up and
an infinite storage life
savings in labour and excellent production results
can be achieved
