2512-MCG (formerly part 2512-SPL)
Postalloy® 2512-MCG: Conforms to AWS CoCr-B. Slightly harder and more wear resistant than 2506-MCG, but its impact resistance is somewhat lower and is also tougher to machine. Weld deposits also have a greater tendency to relief check if welding procedures are not closely monitored.

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.
