HFK 130-G is a CO2 gas-shielded and low alloyed flux cored wire for buildup or use as a final layer. The deposit is tough, machinable, and proper for components subject to metal-to-metal wear.

Typical applications

Buffer layers on ferritic steels before hardfacing, build-up, gear teeth, conveyor chains, rolls, shafts, bearing tracks, idlers, and mine car wheels.
