Advices to weld and bend Dursteel

WELDING DURSTEEL

Made to reach the lower carbon equivalent, Dursteel is really easy to weld with your usual welding gears. All precautions must be taken regarding pre and post heating operations related to combined thicknesses and atmospheric conditions. Our experience taught us that classical 70S wire type is the best device to assemble Dursteel. Welds protection can be carried out with our Durcor wires or electrodes (caution: NEVER perform assembling operations with DURCOR).

SAFE PRACTISE

- Surface treatment : DURSTEEL quenched steels are not suitable for surface treatment (galvanizing)
- Thermal treatment : for the grades 410 and 510, heating over 250°C decreases mechanical characteristics.
