Astro 480 is a superior machinable electrode that provides maximum strength and ductility on heavy sections of cast iron. Due to it’s iron content, it is excellent for welding ferrous metals which are high in phosphorous content and ductile iron. It can also be used to join cast irons to steels.

Applications:
 
Recommended for general maintenance welding where high strength and ductility are required and yet deposits must be machinable. Commonly used on heavy machine bases, equipment parts, cylinder heads and blocks. Engineered for repairs on grey and alloy cast irons.
