VAUTID Ultra 304
A hardfacing welding consumable for exceptionally wear-resistant overlays, supplied as flux-cored wire
This welding consumable combines excellent abrasion resistance with the advantages of flux-cored wire. VAUTID Ultra 304 allows the user to produce, with a high degree of precision, an overlay of fused tungsten carbide in a matrix that retains its integrity when welded. This flux-cored wire features hard, non-melted particles of fused tungsten carbide, securely embedded within a wear-resistant iron-based matrix.
Hardness in position 1: 66 – 69 HRC (DIN 32525-4)
- For a straightforward method of producing extremely wear-resistant layers using flux-cored wire.
- For protecting filigree areas of components, e.g. edges and points.
- Serial production parts which are subject to extreme wear and are produced on automatic welding machines, e.g. scraper bars, feeder screw edges, drill pipe guides, mixer paddles, and ploughshares.
