Postalloy® DuraBuild™
2891-MCG (formerly part 2891-SPL)

Postalloy® DuraBuild™ 2891-MCG is a low alloy build-up hardfacing wire with very good compressive strength and resistance to plastic deformation. An ideal base for subsequent overlay with a more wear resistant alloy. Also good when an easily machined "as welded" deposit is required. Use on carbon and low alloy steels.
