Open arc flux cored hardfacing wire (self shielded)

Flux cored wires that can be welded without using a protective gas are mainly used in the hard facing industry. Huge quantities are used in cement industry, mining, recycling, dredging etc. for rebuilding worn out parts or simply increase life of parts and reduce down times. These self shielded wires needs to be welded with extra long stick out to make sure that the flux inside the wire create the requested gas protection. Flux cored wires with more than 0,5% carbon are automatically self shielded due to the high amount of carbon. Some popular hard facing wires are: OA 59, OA 64, and OA WC2Ni.
