HARDCOVER 460


Alloy Type:

HardCover 460 (HC460) is an economical,
general hardfacing electrode where some
impact is combined with abrasion. In the
as-deposited condition, the microstructure
consists of martensite and some carbides.
This is a great hardfacing electrode for low
open circuit voltage AC welding machines.

Typical Applications
• Surfacing and build-up of worn and new
machine parts of cast steel, steel and manganese
steel, used for earth borders, caterpillar
drives, stampers, shovel teeth,
pressure rollers, conveyors, hammer mill
parts, crusher jaws, and dredger teeth.
