Duroxite® AP Wire
Download data sheet
Duroxite® AP Wire is a gas shielded flux cored all positions hardfacing wire for components experiencing metal-to-metal wear, metal-to-earth wear, impact and high abrasion applications. The deposit offers a good balance of impact and abrasion resistance. Deposits are forgeable but not readily machinable. The wire has been developed to operate in a smooth semi-spray transfer mode whilst welding in all positions. Duroxite® AP Wire can be applied to carbon, low alloy, ,manganese and other steels substrates. The deposited overlay is magnetic on carbon and low alloy steels but not on manganese steels. Duroxite® AP Wire is suitable for single and multiple-layer up to three layers deposit.
Duroxite® AP Wire has many applications where moderate/high impact and high abrasion wear conditions prevail. Examples: Bucket teeth, tillage tools, bucket lips, bucket sides, cutting edges, sand dredge equipment, dragline buckets, conveyor chutes, grizzly bars, screw flights, metal shredders, sliding metal parts, tire shredder knives, extruder screws, tamper feet, churn drills, muller tires. Especially applicable for all-positional welding and re-instating of hardfacing sealing runs on clad wear plate fabrications.

The welded overlay components can be processed by welding, cutting, forming and machining. Specific recommendations can be found in the Duroxite® Product brochure or by consulting your local technical support representative.
When welding or cutting Duroxite® products, smoke is produced containing harmful fumes and gases that are chemically highly complex and difficult to easily classify. The major toxic component in the fumes and gases produced in the process is hexavalent chromium. The proper exhaust ventilation equipment and fume-extraction torches are recommended, as well as suitable protective clothing and respiratory protection for operators.
