    • Smooth Deposit

    This electrode is specially designed for use on high speed tools. Tungsten, molybdenum and vanadium are alloyed with other elements to produce a deposit that will maintain a sharp edge on high speed tool steel at elevated temperatures. The deposits will retain its hardness and resistance to wear at high temperatures when applied to hot working tools. This product is used for hard facing and buildup of surfaces, mill cutters, lathe tools, cams, punches, stencils, trimming plates, circle cutting tools, dies, drawing mandrels, planning tools, turning tools, reamers, hot shears, mandrels, molding plates, etc.
