BaseHARD® 5500
Gas Shielded Flux Cored Wire – Hardfacing


General Characteristics

BaseHARD® 5500 is a gas shielded seamless copper-coated flux cored wire designed for the components subjected to combinations of pressure, metal to metal, moderete impact and abrasion wear.

The wire is suitable for all welding positions and has excellent weldability for the robotic and semi-auto welding operations.

For base materials which are difficult to weld, a buffer layer of BuildHARD® 4200 or BuildHARD® 4300 is recommended.
