HardCover 480 (HC480) is a joining and cladding electrode for manganese steel that can be flame cut. Commonly used in the repair of rail equipment and construction equipment manufactured of manganese steel. The microstructure of this alloy in the asdeposited condition consists of a soft manganese alloy austenite which rapidly work hardens under impact loading. Note – Clean base metal of oils and fatigued sections, and do not allow weld interpass temperature to exceed 500°F. Typical Applications • Ideal for railroad frogs, switches, crossings and for wear plates, bucket teeth, bucket lips, and associated manganese steel parts. Also recommended for sheep foot tampers, hammers, crushers, and a variety of parts designated to resist impact.
