Class 10 material is recommended as facings or inserts for projection welding electrodes and flash and butt welding dies where high electrical conductivity is desirable and a degree of malleability is necessary.
Class 11 (a harder material than Class 10) is recommended as facing inserts for flash and butt welding dies and general purpose projection welding electrodes. It may also be used as seam welder bearing inserts and facing for electro-forming or electro-forging, such as stainless steel.
Class 12 material is specifically recommended for heavy duty projection welding electrodes and for die facings in electro-forming and electro-forging applications. It is suitable as die material for electrical upsetting of rivets and studs.
