Postalloy® Flitewear 5
Postalloy® Flitewear 5 is an iron base tool steel hardfacing wire designed for moderate abrasion and heavy impact resistance. Deposits are martensitic on carbon and low alloys steels.
Flitewear Hardfacing wires have been engineered to improve the efficiency and longevity of screw conveyors, augers, rendering screws and other similar components. They are designed with in mind, where environmental and production issues are unique. They offer excellent welder appeal and out-of-position welding capability. Bead configurations can vary from stringer to wide weave patterns. Welding arcs are smooth and quiet; smoke levels are extremely low; weld deposits are slag free and spatter-free.
- Deposits are slag-free
- Foundation drills
- Post-hole augers flights
- Brick and clay augers
- Hollow stem augers
- Auger flights
