Postalloy® 30 Flux-coated Electrode
Postalloy® 30 is a high strength, ductile, crack resistant welding alloy specifically designed for welding problem steels such as, low alloy, high carbon or crack sensitive tool steels. Ideal for welding dissimilar steels- low alloy, spring steels, carbon steels, tool steels. The benefits of Postalloy® 30 include:
- Excellent joining characteristics - With the combination of balanced alloy chemistry and high strength, crack resistant weld deposits, the capability to weld dissimilar problem steels is outstanding.
- Carbon has no adverse effects - Carbon, the cause of most problems associated with weld cracking and hard spots, is rendered harmless.
- Acts as a shock absorber during operation - Since Postalloy® 30 does not respond to heat-treatment and remains ductile, it has the ability to withstand heavy impact or shock loading.

Clean weld area of contaminants. Remove any defective or fatigued weld metal. Bevel heavy sections 90˚. Tilt the electrode about 15˚ in the direction of travel and use the lowest amperage possible. For certain high alloy steels, a preheat of 300-400 ˚F(149-204 ˚C) is recommended. Hold a short arc and use stringer beads. Peen to reduce stresses. Allow to cool and remove slag.
