Clifton Steel's Tensaweld Ultra-200 is a tubular wire for open arc hardfacing specialized for compatibility with overlay material.

This wire has been formulated to seal joints in Overlay material, making it compatible for welding ClifClad. Since the Ultra-200 is a chrome-free wire, using it on its own will still comply with OSHA standard on Hexavelant chrome. 

At Clifton Steel, we strive to provide our customers with a confident experience when deciding what wire to purchase. That's why we've taken the guesswork out of the buying experience. By developing these wires to compliment our products, we guarantee compatibility when paired with our material.
