New strip / flux combination for Alloy 625 cuts down on cladding time and cladding materials
voestalpine Böhler Welding adds a new dimension to the productivity of the electroslag strip cladding process (ESSC), with new solutions for the single layer cladding of Alloy 625. Our new, patented strip / flux combination SOUDOTAPE 625 / RECORD EST 625-1 LD cuts down on cladding time and the use of cladding materials, while meeting all prevalent industry requirements for the deposited metal.
Savings are obtained in two different ways:
- Alloy 625 composition with Fe < 10 % requirement can be realized in a single layer with reduced thickness compared with the traditional industry solution.
- Alloy 625 composition with Fe < 7 % requirement can be realized in a single layer, where two layers are needed with the traditional industry solution.
The tables show welding parameters and productivity data for single layer cladding of Alloy 625 onto EN 10025-2: S355JR base material, for respectively the Fe <10% and Fe <7% requirements. Strip dimension: 60 x 0.5 mm.
