WIPWeld MangaChrom (AWS A5-4 similar to E307-16)
A rutile -basic all-position electrode designed primarily for joining dissimilar metals, repair and surfacing manganese and high-carbon steels. Austenitic deposit has better abrasion resistance, less tendency to crack, and longer life than plain manganese steels. Easy to manipulate with quiet stable arc and easy slag removal. The weld metal cannot be cut or gouged with an oxy-acetylene torch.
Applications and Directions
Used for welding dissimilar metals including stainless steels to carbon steels to low alloy steels and austenitic manganese steels to carbon steels to low alloy steels. For surfacing and repair of cracks in manganese castings and equipment such as rail point and crossings, rail frogs, etc.
