Orion Flux Core Wire

SKU: RM-7696

Orion Flux Core is a self-shielded Hard facing wire with excellent efficiency and running characteristics. It is ideal for extreme abrasion applications with light impact. Made of Boron carbides suspended in a martensitic matrix, this wire produces excellent hardness of 60 RC in one pass, and 65 RC in a second. Orion Flux Core has a 90% efficiency rate, producing very hard deposits quickly. It is exceptionally smooth running, getting the job done quickly with a high yield of material on the work piece. Orion Flux Core is a two pass maximum wire and may stress crack due to high hardness. Download PDF
