Postalloy® FrogTuff-FCO

Postalloy® FrogTuff-FCO is a non-cracking high alloy austenitic manganese steel open-arc welding wire for joining, build-up or hardfacing. Produces high-strength, crack-free deposits that are tough, ductile and work-harden rapidly. The high yield strength reduces mushrooming from impact.
