The solution …
We partner with our customers to optimize coatings for their needs.
We offer more than 100 wear-resistant coatings that extend part life, from the tungsten carbide (WC), chromium carbide (CrC), cermet, and oxide coating families. Our coatings are tested for abrasion resistance using sand abrasion per ASTM G-65.
We’ll work with you to select a coating with the correct ratio of hard phase to metal matrix. Our coatings are designed to offer good wear resistance yet retain some ductility to resist impact. And because we have our own powder manufacturing facility, we can optimize carbide grain size for your application.
