The article gives the results of investigations of application of a flux-cored wire of PPT-22 grade as a filler material and magnetically-impelled arc in argon arc surfacing of worn-out parts of alloy VT22. It is shown, that in restoration of geometric sizes of worn-out surfaces using surfacing, the feasibility appears to control the shape of deposition and to produce the deposited metal with properties at the level of base metal after the standard heat treatment. 6 Ref., 1 Table, 10 Figures.
