Apollo B Arc RodSKU: RM-1014
For joining Mangenese and carbon steels. Also for build-up or hard surfacing. Apollo B produces sound welds that combine excellent strength, impact resistance, abrasion resistance and joining properties. It can join stainless to carbon steel, and other combinations of dissimilar and hard-to-weld steels. The special low-hydrogen coating gives spatter-free welds and ease of operation in all positions. Ideal for build-up situations requiring tough but machinable deposits.
Applications include joining wedge bars to dipper teeth, repairing cracked crusher rolls, surfacing valve seats, and welding alloy steel lips to manganese buckets. Apollo B is also effective for building up manganese and carbon steels before overlaying with a very high abrasion resistant material, such as our Olympia, Omega or Zeta products. Download PDF

No preheat needed on most steels.
Use stringer beads rather than weave.
In joining, use heavy root pass.
