Low-heat input electrode for cast irons.
Xuper 2240 is excellent not only for welding all types of cast iron, but also cast iron-to-steel. It can be used for joining, as well as for overlaying, build ups and repairing defects. 2240 is suitable for all types of sections – thick, medium and thin – and for joining thick-to-thin sections.
Xuper 2240 deposits are readily machineable and is very easy to use. The alloy transfers in a smooth spray type action and has excellent wash and fluidity. The arc is stable, with no undercutting and excessive spatter and fuming is
minimal. Moreover, the weld deposits have smooth appearance and have a good colour match to cast iron
