Challenge Us: Let Weartech solve your hardfacing problems
Wear, not fracture, is often the reason metal parts fail. Weartech has devoted the past 30 years to perfecting its hardfacing technology (also known as hard surfacing) needed to reduce wear which causes parts to lose dimension and functionality. Hardfacing is the additive application manufacturing process of depositing wear resistant materials to a substrate by welding or thermal spraying. Hardfacing increases efficiency, reduces the need for replacement parts, power consumption and equipment downtime.
Wear & Corrosion Resistant Alloys
Proven the most versatile of hardfacing alloys, Weartech’s cobalt and nickel-based alloys are formulated to resist a variety of hostile environments including abrasion, corrosion, galling, oxidation and erosion. The versatility gives Weartech the freedom to plan and execute custom hardfacing solutions within different alloy designs. These alloys are capable of maintaining wear properties at temperatures up to 1500°F (800°C), which is required in industries such as aerospace and petrochemical.
ASME Section IX Approved Welding Procedures
Weartech provides hardfacing solutions to apply wear-and corrosion-resistant alloys to components typically manufactured from softer base metals like carbon and stainless steels. Weartech’s hardfacing alloys help improve the life of finish machined components, thereby reducing maintenance costs and downtime.
Weartech has an extensive system of Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS) qualifications per ASME section IX code requirements. These procedures have allowed our hardfacing and welding department to provide consistently high quality and repeatable welds that are supported by Procedure Qualification Records for each material and welding type used.
