Supercast Ni is a basic, graphite coated AC/DC electrode for the lower strength welding of cast irons. It is characterised by a soft, smooth arc with low penetration and spatter levels on both AC and DC power sources.
Ease of striking is a feature of Supercast Ni and it also has a particularly good wetting action resulting in well bonded welds of regular contour and attractive appearance.
For repair and build-up of all standard grades of grey cast iron, malleable iron, austenitic cast iron and some grades of meehanite cast iron.
