Cast iron is one of the main structural materials, having a number of valuable service properties, in particular wear resistance. Usually, improvement of this indicator is achieved by changing the structure of cast iron due to introduction of expensive alloying elements into its composition. The carried out experiments showed the possibility of transforming a gray low-alloyed iron to white wear-resistant one due to modification of deposited metal by small portions of tellurium powder. Electroslag surfacing was carried out in a current-carrying mold with melting of filler in the slag layer in the form of chips of a low-alloy cast iron and additionally introducing of flux-cored wire with a charge, containing tellurium powder into the slag pool. 6 Ref., 9 Fig.
