AMPCO-TRODE® 8N

Description and Application

AMPCO-TRODE® 8N aluminum bronze spooled wire and bare filler rod produce a deposit of high strength and good ductility with a nominal hardness of 140 Brinell as applied with the inert-gas processes. The addition of nickel improves corrosion resistance in heat and saltwater.

AMPCO-TRODE® 8N is especially suited for marine environments, joining, and cladding components undergoing metal to metal wear. It is ideal for ship propellers, shipbuilding, pumps, shafts and guide grooves.

Typical applications:
  • Ship propellers
  • Bearing overlays
  • Pumps chemical
  • Chemical industry
  • Breaker blocks
  • Guide grooves
