These are general guidelines on how to apply KenCast to your equipment. However, weld applications may vary substantially, depending on the material to which KenCast is applied. Consult a local welding representative or contact your Kennametal Representative for recommendations on your particular application.
| .052" (13,2mm) wire (flux cored)
| 1/8" (3,1mm) weld rod
These specifications are for welding to low- to medium-carbon steels.
When welding to specialty steels, such as stainless and manganese, contact your Kennametal Representative for welding recommendations.
KenCast parts must be welded properly to achieve optimum performance:
- Always attach castings with the steel side against the surface to be protected.
- The carbide surface side, painted black to identify the wear side, faces outward.
- Welding the carbide surface can cause cracking and is detrimental to carbide particles.
- Score the steel side with an angle grinder or chop saw with corundum wheel, then strike with a hammer.
- Plasma or waterjet.
