New die repair welding electrodes offer unequalled benefits

Tags: New Product

Recently developed by our R&D Labs and manufactured in our Dublin plant (Ireland), the two new maraging steel electrodes, EutecTrode® XHD 6860 and 6855XHD, present unique formulations, with no equivalent on the market today.

Maraging steels (derived from "Martensitic" and "Aging" phase transformations) were first developed in the 1960's as high-strength constructional steels for the aviation and space technology. Their most important advantages are their comparatively high toughness levels at maximum tensile strength which are also much appreciated in the Tool & Die manufacturing industry.
