STRATA 171 For Hard Facing

Ideal for the high abrasion & medium impact resistance required on earth moving and farming equipment
Strata 171 is a good general purpose hardfacing electrode where some impact is combined with abrasion.
Ideally suited for use in plant and farm equipment applications that require resistance to soil abrasion and medium impact resistance. The even dispersement of the carbides in the weld deposit provides uniform resistance to wear. 

Key Features:

  • Economical hardfacing electrode for abrasion and moderate impact
  • The best hardfacing electrode for low open circuit voltage AC welding machines
  • Spray transfer allos for smooth, uniform overlays
  • Hardness of RC 56-58 allows for good abrasion resistance along with moderate impact resistance.
