These flux-cored wire electrodes are especially well suited for weld surfacing of sealing seats on blast-furnace cones. The electrodes are of the austenitic type, in which the excess carbon combines with niobium and forms hard, uniformly distributed niobium carbides. Consequently, this alloy type exhibits extremely high resistance to wear. Alloy 624 is characterised by an austenitic structure which does not undergo any metallurgical alterations during welding; hence, crack resistance is ensured over a wide range of thermal conditions, such as preheating and intermediate pass temperatures from 0 to 300 °C without difficulty. The workpiece can return to room temperature without problem before stress-relief annealing.

35-45 HRC Upon slow cooling, the composition of the flux-cored wire electrode yields weld metal similar to grey cast iron, with a lamellar graphite structure. For avoiding cracks in the weld metal, the workpiece should be preheated to about 450 °C, and the temperature should be maintained constant during welding. The workpiece should subsequently be cooled as slowly as possible. For repair welding on ingot moulds, heat treatment is not necessary. This alloy is well suited for repair of GGL, of defects, ingot moulds, etc.
