Polymet Introduces New Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing Wires
CINCINNATI, OH - Polymet Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high performance wires for hardfacing, welding and thermal spraying, has introduced two unique new tungsten carbide hardfacing wires for demanding wear applications.
The new wires, designated Polytung, are available in 0.062 inch (1.6 mm) and 0.091 inch (2.4mm) diameters. Two versions are available in each diameter, Polytung NiBWC, tungsten carbide in a nickel boron matrix, and Polytung NiCrBWC, tungsten carbide in a nickel chrome boron matrix. Both wires are available with standard tungsten carbide and macro crystalline carbides.
Recent G-65 abrasion test data as well as field trial applications confirm that the new Polytung wires are superior to other wear resistant hardfacing alloys.
Polytung NiBWC and NiCrBWC are ideal for MIG welding/hardfacing of the most demanding applications such as rotary dredge cutter heads, draglines and loading buckets in the mining industry.
Polymet (http://www.polymet.us/ ), a world-class manufacturer of high performance wire for hardfacing, welding and thermal spraying, produces high quality products used in the aerospace, automotive, cement, mining, lumber, nuclear, power generation and many other industries. Our wires are ideal for demanding applications such as metal to metal, metal to earth, high impact, high abrasion, corrosion and high temperature, or combinations of these wear factors.
