A nickel-iron electrode for welding normal grades of cast iron and for joining them to steel. Can be used for malleable nodular cast iron and alloy cast iron. It has a special iron jacketed Ni core wire, which gives the electrode much improved current carrying capacity compared to electrodes with a homogeneous core wire. The electrode produces a weld metal stronger and more resistant to solidification cracking than the pure nickel electrode types. Typical applications are repair of pump bodies, heave machine sections, gear teeth, flanges and pulleys.
