Postalloy® DuraChrome™
Pulverizing Roll
Pulverizing Roll
Postalloy® DuraChrome™ 2834-SPL is a high chromium hardfacing alloy that produces a high volume fraction of wear resistant chromium carbides in a tough alloy matrix that is designed for high abrasion or abrasion combined with moderate impact. Deposit will polish in service and is heat resistant to 1000°F (538°C). Use on low carbon mild steel, manganese, stainless, and low alloy steels.

Welding Procedure

When welding out of position, use .045 with reverse polarity and the lower range of amperages and voltages. Weld vertical down with 3/4"(18mm) wide weave beads. A gas cover will be helpful, especially when using a constant current power source and voltage sensing feeder.
