C610 Aluminum Bronze A-1 Electrode


INTRODUCTION

Aufhauser Aluminum Bronze A-1 Electrode is designed for joining and surfacing on aluminum bronzes with up to 10% Al and for dissimilar joints between steels and CuAl-bronzes. Aluminum Bronze A-1 produces strong, dense, ductile, and crack-free weld deposits that will work-harden under compression. Possesses excellent weldability, stable arc, less spatters; easy to remove slag.

APPLICATIONS

  • Joining aluminum bronzes of similar composition, high strength copper-zinc alloys, silicon bronzes, manganese bronzes, some nickel alloys, many ferrous metals and alloys, and combinations of dissimilar metals
  • Overlaying cast iron, steels and copper alloys
  • Ship building, seawater applications, desalination plants, chemical industry, pump parts which are attacked by salt water (propellers, bearings, etc.)
  • Surfacing wear- and corrosion-resistant bearing surfaces

GENERAL INFORMATION

Chemical Composition
Copper Iron Lead Aluminum Silicon Other*
Remainder 0.50-5 0.02 6.5-9 1.5 0.50

* Total other includes: Zinc, Tin, Manganese, Nickel = 0.50%

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Copper and its alloys require a relatively high heat input with shortened welding time. Higher preheat temperatures and faster welding rates than for steel are necessary.
