Tafa 204M (MCP 400) as you know is a propriety tool facing/mould making alloy. It is said to resemble a Kirksite material and the only information I can find is that it is Zinc with Copper and Aluminium. I could find no composition percentages or further information. I guess the vendors are keeping their secrets?
Good Luck!

We have occasionally replaced this wire with a psuedo alloy of alumnium and zinc wires, ie one of each in the arc spray.

According to the mold maker, it worked fine.
