Postalloy® 
2506-MCG (formerly part 2506-SPL)
Description

Postalloy® 2506-MCG: Conforms to AWS CoCr-A. Cobalt base hardfacing alloy with chromium carbides providing excellent resistance to metal to metal wear and corrosion over a wide temperature range. Offers outstanding self-mating, anti-galling properties and it is effective when abrasion is accompanied by thermal shock or impact. Deposits are machinable. Crack free deposits can be made with proper preheat, post heat and inter-pass temperature.

Welding Procedure

These wires operate over a wide range of settings and can be used in short-arc and spray transfer. For short-arc welding, use 16-24 volts, 80-225 amps. CO gives the best control, but the most dilution and lowest hardness on first pass. Argon/CO (75/25) gives good control, a better bead appearance and higher first pass hardness. For spray-arc, use 26-31 volts, 220-300 amps. Argon/Oxygen (98/2) works well. It produces minimal dilution and high first pass hardness. Gas flow rate - 40-45 cfh.
