SelectAlloy Ni55-C

Nickel Alloy / Metal Cored / Gas Shielded


  • SelectAlloy Ni55-C is a premium metal cored, gas shielded electrode designed for welding various grades of cast iron in the flat position.
  • This electrode is intended to be used for single or multi-pass welding in build-up and repair welding applications.
  • Ni55-C may also be used for buttering or joining certain transition joints between cast iron and cast steels or mild/low alloy steels.
  • Typical uses of this electrode include engine blocks, drive shafts, pump housings, valves and machine bases.
  • There is no AWS Classificaiton but the deposit chemistry is similar to ENiFe-CI per AWS A5.15
