Wear-Resistant Cobalt Hardfacing Alloys

We produce the complete range of industry standard wear-resistant cobalt hardfacing alloys. We often produce custom made alloys as well.

The standard wear-resistant cobalt hardfacing alloys available are:

  • Continuous cast rods for TIG and oxy-acetylene welding - diameters from 2.4mm to 10mm
  • Densified rods for saw tipping - diameters from 3.2mm to 8mm
  • Continuous cast rods for electrode manufacture - diameters from 2.4mm to 5.0mm with strict dimensional tolerances
  • Electrodes for manual welding - diameters from 2.5mm to 4.0mm
  • Flux cored wire for MIG application - diameters from 1.2mm to 2.4mm
  • Solid TIG wire - diameters from 1.2mm to 2.0mm
  • Powders for PTA hardfacing - sieve analysis -180/+53 microns
  • These alloys conform to AWS A5.21 2001 ERCoCr-A etc

Our foundry uses various casting techniques to produce components for a wide range of industries:

  • Solid cast bars
  • Investment cast components
  • Centrifugally spun castings
  • Typical components produced are valve seats and bodies, sink roll bushes, punches, extrusion discs, and many more

Cobalt-base wear-resistant components

Weartech International's cobalt-base components are produced using a wide range of casting methods.  The most common of these is the centrifugal casting process which produces particularly dense porosity-free components with a uniform grain structure for increased wear-resistance.  We supply components finished to drawing or simply proof-machined if preferred.
