Iron-based chromium carbide alloys designed for applications with abrasion accompanied by impact.

DETAILS

Iron-based chromium carbide alloys designed for applications subject to abrasion accompanied by impact from rock, ore, clay, sand or cement, including digging or crusher surfaces or parts that must maintain sharp cutting edges. This product can be applied in multiple layers and may cross check crack. Metal-to- Earth hardfacing products can be used on carbon, low alloy, manganese, stainless and cast iron parts. Used in applications with abrasion accompanied by impact.

Features

  • Use on carbon, stainless and manganese steels
  • Deposit is limited to two layers
  • Provides good resistance to abrasion, impact and some metal-to-metal wear
  • Can be forged readily without affecting its mechanical properties
