Tungsten carbide (WC) is a brittle and meta-stable compound that exhibits high hardness and excellent toughness. It is a very useful material for cutting and wear applications because it has good impact strength, resistance to galling/abrasion/erosions, and long lasting properties in extreme temperatures and environments.
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) tungsten carbide coatings provide exceptional corrosion resistance when applied in a thin film at room temperature. They are also abrasion resistant and have metallurgical bond strengths in excess of 22,000 psi, making them an ideal choice for heavy duty applications.
WC cladded wear parts offer the highest performing protection against gouging, crushing and grinding in severe impact applications. These abrasion and corrosion resistant parts come in solid, AeroTech Bonded or Brazed and in custom cast pieces for specific wear applications.
Tungsten Carbide - Can be found in a variety of shapes and grades to suit your application. It can be used in abrasion and erosion applications where impact and fine particle wear is present, and offers a superior solution to other materials such as ceramics or steel.
TufCote - Can be found in a range of sizes and grades to fit your application, and is made from cast tungsten carbide granules in a self fluxing nickel matrix. It is abrasion and erosion resistant and offers a superior solution to other materials in high impact applications where impact and fine particle wear is present.
