This paper presents results of the research focused on the possibility of the restoration of the shape parts of molds made of X15CrNiSi20-12 (EN 100 95) heat-resistant austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel working in high-pressure die casting of aluminum alloys by clad welding. There were tested two welding wires—E Ni 6625 and E 18 8 Mn B 2 2—deposited on X15CrNiSi20-12 (EN 100 95) tool steel using cold metal transfer (CMT) welding in a protective atmosphere of Ar. The resistance of welds was tested against dissolution in molten aluminum alloy ENAC-AlSi9 and the testing procedure was designed. The resistance of welds against dissolution were assessed by exposition of welded clads in an aluminum melt for 120 and 300 min. The EDX semi-quantitative microanalyses of element distribution were performed at the welding–melt interface, and build-ups were also observed on the surface of welded clads. View Full-Text
