SAITRON 214
Description:
SAITRON 214 is a Cr-Ni-Mn austenitic stainless steel low heat input electrode with high Manganese content. It is specially used for joining and overlaying manganese steels (upto 12-14% Mn) and for joining these to other steels. Joints are tough and has excellent crack resistance. It is also used for cladding on heat resistant stainless steels and cast steels. It is very much suitable for buffer layer prior to hardfacing and for repairing of Mn-steel. The deposited stainless steel weld deposit is heat resistant and non-scaling upto 850°C. The deposited weld deposit is work harden type and gives hardness up to 350 BHN after work hardening. Excellent arc stability, easy slag removal, smooth weld bead appearance with radiographic quality.
 
Applications:
Best choice for welding crack sensitive steels and Hadfield Manganese steel. Typical applications include for positional joining and repair of manganese steel parts used in Cement plants and Mining industry, Steel plants, Construction and Earthmoving industry, Defence etc. Repair and fabrication of shovel, excavator and dragline buckets, sprockets, track pads and crushers etc. Specially recommended for Armour steel welding in Defence Industry.
