This submerged arc wire resists metal-to-metal wear in rolling and sliding applications. Deposits can be made tougher/softer by heat treatment, machining and hot forging. Lincore® 40-S provides good weld pool control and slag detachability on roundabouts. The product is designed for applications such as the final overlay on tractor idlers, rollers, drive sprockets and mine car wheels. Lincore® 40-S should be used with Lincolnweld® 880 or 802 flux and exhibits typical hardness (as welded) of ~ 40HRC.
