STRATA 501 For High Deposition Underlay for hardfacing

High impact resistant electrode for welding and cladding stabilised and unstabilised stainless steels to themselves and to carbon steels
Strata 501 is a fully synthetic stainless high performance joining and cladding electrode used for welding and cladding stabilised stainless steels to themselves and to carbon steels. Also suitable for underlaying of hard surfacing or for building up of broken or worn parts, takes high impacts and will work harden. 
Because Strata 501 is a high recovery electrode, it allows you to use a smaller than normal electrode yet still have a high deposit rate. It is also ideal for old and worn out parts where low heat is a must
It is a fully synthetic 316 stainless high performance electrode providing very high speed weld deposition comparable to MIG welding.

Key Features:

  • A true non-overheating 316 stainless steel electrode
  • Very high speed weld deposition compares with MIG welding
  • Self releasing slag - eye appealing welds


Tensile Strength: Up to 107,000 psi
Yield Strength: Up to 75,000 psi
Elongation: Up to 36%
Impact Energy: (-105°C)
Hardness: Brinell 190, Rockwell B92
