EutecTrode® XHD 6860

Innovation in maraging steel

XHD 6860 - higher performance electrode with a completely new metallurgical formulation with

  • increased as welded hardness (40 HRC)
  • increased aged hardness (60 HRC)
  • increased tempering resistance
  • XHD 6860 protective weld coating solutions are recommended for parts particularly in the following industries:

    • Tool & Die manufacture / maintenance / repair sectors
    • Automotive press / forming dies
    • Light alloy pressure die casting
    • Plastic injection moulding
    • Cold trimming, stamping, extrusion rams, mandrels, screws, shafts etc

    Typical applications include: machine tools and dies for cutting, trimming, shearing, stamping, forming, extrusion, metal working operations etc.
