2839-MCO (formerly part 2839-SPL)
Postalloy® 2839-MCO is a metal-cored gas-shielded hardfacing wire that is capable of producing single and multiple layer weld deposits comprised of a large volume of extremely hard multi-Carbides surrounded by a Martensitic matrix. Deposits perform well under low and high stress abrasion and show dramatic improvements over traditional Chromium Carbide products. It may be used on carbon, low alloy, and manganese steels. Unlike Chromium Carbide Alloys, 2839-MCO deposits are heat treatable, allowing for tougher weld metal for applications that encounter moderate impact.

Welding ProcedureWhile Postalloy® 2839-MCO will easily operate with or without a gas cover, you may find applications for which you prefer a shielding gas. A gas cover for example, will help the weld bead flow out. If a gas cover is used Argon/CO2 or 100% CO2 is recommended. This should cause amperages to go up about 10% and the stick-out should be shortened.
