Description

AMPCO-CORE® 200 is an aluminum bronze flux core wire for use with the Gas Metal Arc Welding process.


AMPCO-CORE® 200 is primarily an overlay filler metal. The high strength values of the deposit combined with excellent wear-resisting characteristics make this alloy unsurpassed for bearing overlays where extreme wear and high pressures are encountered in service.
