AMPCO-TRODE® 10

AWS A5.6 – ECUAL-A2

AWS A5.7 – ERCUAL-A2

Description and Application

Aluminum bronze is the most versatile welding electrode in this family of alloys. It is intended for deposition with electric arc welding processes.

AMPCO-TRODE® 10 will weld and join many ferrous and nonferrous metals and combinations of dissimilar metals. These metals include the more weldable grades of cast iron, high and low carbon steels, copper, bronzes and copper-nickel alloys.
Applications for AMPCO-TRODE® 10 include: building up bearing surfaces, joining and fabricating copper alloys, overlaying for resistance to corrosion and erosion and general maintenance and repair welding.
