Enter Search Phrase
Postalloy® 214 is a high chromium carbide hardfacing electrode for high abrasion and mild impact applications. Deposits take on a high polish, producing excellent frictional and sliding abrasion resistance. Use on carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels and cast iron.
Postalloy® 214 is highly resistant to heat and corrosion. Corrosion resistance is equal to straight chromium steels and it retains it's hardness up to 1000°F(538°C).
Postalloy® 214 offers good out-of-position welding characteristics on either AC or DC. It offers fast deposition rate and easy slag removal. It produces minimum dilution for high first past hardness and deposits are extremely smooth and virtually ripple free.

Welding Procedure Due to lower dilution, DC straight polarity will produce a higher first pass hardness and is also ideal for thin sections. Remove all damaged or fatigued metal. Preheating is generally not required. However, for high carbon or alloy steels and cast iron, a preheat of approximately 400┬░F (204┬░C) is recommended. Maintain a short to medium arc using a weave technique. Remove slag.
