Postalloy® 2808-FCG is a flux-cored, gas-shielded nickel base hard surfacing alloy with an excellent combination of toughness, resistance to thermal shock, frictional metal-to-metal wear and heat resistance. Machinable deposits are especially resistant to deformation from repeated impact at high temperatures. Weld deposits work-harden and age-harden in service, providing good wear resistance and will not chip, crack or spall.
