    • Tensile Strength – 50,000 PSI
    • Elongation – 30%
    • Hardness – 160 HB
    • Low amperage
    • Maximum Machinability

    Ideal for low temperature welding of cast iron in all positions. Repairs breaks and cracks in engine blocks, gear housings, and machine bases. Alcam #60 is ideal for filling holes and building up worn or missing sections, followed by machining to final dimensions. The #60 is also capable of joining cast iron to steel.

    ELECTRODE: 3/32”, 1/8”, 5/32” & 3/16”
    TIG & MIG: All standard sizes available

    Alcam # 61 (High Strength Cast, Cast to Cast & Cast to Steel)
    AC DC-R DC-S Tig & Mig

    • Tensile Strength – 80,000 PSI,
    • Elongation – 20%
    • Hardness - 200 Birnnel
    • Machinable

    Alcam# 61 is used for repair and fabrication of all gray and alloyed cast irons. This electrode is recommended for welding machine bases, gear housings, cylinder heads, cams, levers, filling holes, repairing teeth of cast gears, and building up for replacing missing sections. The #61 is ideal for similar joining of ductile iron, “Ni-Resistant” and “Meehanite,” or dissimilar joining to steel. Also, the #61 is suitable for joining nickel alloys to gray cast iron, cast steel and malleable cast iron

    • Tensile Strength – 75,000 PSI,
    • Elongation - 24%
    • Hardness - 210 Brinnel
    • Machinable

    Excellent for use on sewer pipe, machine base, gear housing, transmission housings, sprockets, repair or buildup of gears and any repair of cast iron to steel.

    ELECTRODE; 3/32”, 1/8” & 5/32”
