Cast Iron

Various types of cast iron electrode are available to meet the needs you have for your repair whether it be a simple part for a cast iron gate or the needs of an engine block there are electrodes which will suit your application.  We sell electrodes in small packs for your smaller repair so you don't waste your money on purchasing a full pack.  Typically the higher the nickel content the more costly the electrode.  Most cast iron repairs will need both pre-heat and slow post heat to avoid cracks,  a dry sand bed in which to bury a hot casting can be a good method to reduce heat slowly.
Many cast iron welds require stress relieving during the welding process, the ball face of a ball & pein hammer should be used with many light blows on and around the weld for stress relief around the weld.
