Just Imagine being able to repair anything made of Cast Iron using your own propane torch. No flux! Normally, to repair Cast Iron you would require expensive training and equiptment. Even if you filled those
requirements the probablility of a failed repair was still great. Why? Normally cast iron welding requires you to bring the base metal up to extremely high temperatures. Cast Iron has a tendency to be intently brittle. Once the welding is finished the Cast Iron must cool at an exact graduated rate. If this doesn't occur the item will crack and completely shatter. Rendering the entire piece worthless. The secret to Castaloy is a high strength repair at a lower temperature 550 deg F. Castaloy extinguished the cracking problem that has plagued welders for years.

Three Easy Steps
Clean the base metal using anything from a wire brush, file, sand paper, grinder etc. No Flux needed
Heat the base metal using anything from propane on up. Do not heat the Castaloy rod. Remember the heavier the item the longer it takes to reach 550 deg f.
As soon as the base metal
reaches 550 deg the Castaloy rod will flow. Back off with your
heat and make your repair.
