Gemini C Arc RodSKU: RM-1224
For Stainless Steels in High Corrosive Applications. For nickel & steel alloys, overlay and joining, ideal for Inconel or Hastelloy. Gemini C has unsurpassed corrosion resistance to vapors and solutions of sulphuric and hydrochloride acids, as well as chlorine gas and hypochlorite’s. Deposits resist oxidizing and non-oxidizing salts, alkalis and organic acids. They have high resistance to pitting in sea water and marine atmosphere. Gemini C has been developed to produce unsurpassed durable deposits to resist wear and corrosion even at elevated temperatures and with heavy impact loads. Deposits retain hardness to 1000ºF (538ºC) and resist oxidation and corrosion up to 2000ºF (1093ºC).
Gemini C is excellent for joining and overlaying high alloy material, such as Inconel and Hastelloy or stainless steels. In addition, it can be used to provide a corrosion resistant overlay on mild or low alloy steels. It is ideal for hot forging dies, ladles, tong bits, forming rolls, draw punches and any parts exposed to extreme thermal shock, heavy corrosion at elevated temperatures. Contains tungsten, chromium and molybdenum (nickel base). Download PDF
