TERROWELD DS6
 
Single Electrode for Railway Points and Crossings
Terroweld DS6 is a heavy-coated basic electrode for applications, which demand resistance to high abrasion coupled with heavy to moderate impact. It is a very smooth running electrode having very good slag detachability and bead appearance.
 
The weld deposit consists of fi ne austenite grains with about 5% carbide precipitated at the grain boundaries.
 
ALLOY BASE
Fe, Cr, Ni, Mn, Mo
 
SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Beautiful bead appearance
  • Exceptional slag detachability
  • High recovery deposition
APPLICATIONS
Suitable for welding and surfacing manganese steels where heavy impact loads accompanied by severe abrasion and friction is prevalent, such as in railway points and crossings. This electrode obviates the need for separate electrodes for joining the points & crossings and hardfacing.
 
PROPERTIES
UTS     : 59-65 kg / mm2
Elongation     : 18-22%

WELDING PROCEDURE
  • Welding is recommended to be done by stringer beads
  • All precautions, as necessary for welding manganese steel parts, should be taken
  • Peening at hot condition has beneficial effect
