Jupiter® BBB Arc Rod

Cast Iron (SMAW) Stick Welding Electrodes 

For repair of all Meehanite, ductile, malleable, gray cast irons.  Excellent for steel to cast iron welding.  Weld deposit offers excellent machinability.  

Jupiter BBB has a special non-conductive coating, which permits welding in tight spaces without side arcing. It produces fully machinable deposits and allows simple repair of defective, broken or worn castings, even in deep holes or out-of-position. Jupiter BBB has a soft stable arc and low-fuming characteristics that let the welder see and control the arc puddle. Since Jupiter BBB can generally be used without preheat, cast parts can often be repaired in place without disassembly.
