Prime-Arc 85 JW (joining wire) and Prime-Arc 85 JE (joining electrode) are designed to deposit a modified austenitic stainless steel recommended for joining, rebuilding, or cushion overlaying on applications involving high-strength and heat-corrosion resistance. It is also frequently used in dissimilar metal applications to join carbon steels and high-strength alloy steels to stainless steels. Prime-Arc 85 has excellent welder appeal with a smooth spray arc and self-peeling slag.
Prime-Arc 85 is a universal weld consumable that can be used to join high-strength steels, chromium carbide overlay plates, stainless steels, and dissimilar metals like stainless to mild steel. Applications include cast steel, rebuilding worn areas, sprockets, gear teeth, shaft repair, agitator blades, tool steel, and stud removal.
