2225-FCG
Description

POSTALLOY® 2225-FCG is an iron base flux-cored welding alloy that produces a wear resistant nickel-chromium-moly weld deposit for build-up and welding wrought and cast steel.. Postallloy® 2225-FCG is optimally suited for forging die applications, primarily for the repair and reclamation of hammer dies. The welding characteristics facilitate continiuous multiple passes without pausing for slag removal. It is also is excellent as a maintenance alloy, providing 130,000 psi tensile strength fabricating welds.. Preferred for use on forging hammer bases, columns, rams, sow blocks, die shanks and die holders.
