Olympia B Flux Core Wire

SKU: RM-7693

For hardfacing, to resist abrasion on carbon steels, alloy steels, cast iron and manganese. Olympia B Flux Core is a self-shielded hardface wire with an exceptionally high alloy content for resistance to extreme abrasion applications. The deposits also resist mild impact and high heat. Very suitable for vertical down-hand welding (.045 recommended). Olympia B Flux Core has a special metal core composition which provides superior abrasion resistant alloying that includes chromium, molybdenum, boron and vanadium. A total alloy content that exceeds 15%, provides an excellent high hardness deposit. This is combined with excellent running characteristics and slag free deposits. Olympia B Flux Core deposits will stress crack due to their high hardness. Deposits should be limited to two passes.  Download PDF

Best Practices

An Argon/CO2 or 100% CO2 gas shield will enhance running characteristics.
A 98/2 Argon/CO2 mix will allow spray arc transfers.
Will run vertical down.
We recommend Gemini Anti-Spatter spray for lasting protection of your contact tip and MIG nozzle (see chemical aids in Abrasives & Metal Working products section).
