WELDING FEATURES OF THE ELECTRODE
The arc is stable both AC and DC, but is very soft, thus minimising dilution.
Weld beads are smooth, bright and evenly rippled. The slag is fairly fluid but
relatively quick freezing, thus allowing smooth blends when edges are involved.
The slag is readily controllable, thus making positional welding very easy, plus
the slag is easily detachable.
APPLICATIONS AND MATERIALS TO BE WELDED
Successful welding of cast irons is dependent on low strength weld metal and
controlled heat input welding procedures. Both characteristics are assured by
the use of CIN-1. CIN-1 may be used for all standard grades of grey cast iron
and malleable cast irons.
Typical applications include repairs to engine blocks and heads, gear housings,
machine bases, as well as repairs to used castings. Is also used to rectify
casting defects on new castings
