Cast iron and its welding

You might wonder why we are into this topic welding cast iron; but it is a versatile material which is used in manufacturing various industrial products with implications in our day to day life. With its excellent fluidity, low melting point, the extraordinary response to various designs of the machine etc, it has come to be known as an engineering material and is used in a range of applications such as machines, pipes, motor parts, gearbox and numerous other material for daily use.

Thanks for sharing. A Ferroweld steel electrode is best used for casting iron. I used this in class when I was attending a welding certification course in weldtech training. It has a lower cost and is user friendly. The weld deposits are hard and are not machine able but they can be finished by grinding. This is the lowest cost electrode for welding cast iron and the electrode has a user friendly arc. It tolerates welding on castings that cannot be completely cleaned before the welding. Ferroweld deposits rust like cast iron, this can be important while repairing cast iron parts like exhaust manifolds on antique cars.
