Hard-facing Products

SuperHard XHD

Super Hard XHD is designed to resist extreme abrasive wear. It is a solid core electrode with alloys in the coating. It contains over 43% of complex Carbides.

It is smooth running which means low dilution of the base metal, and the deposit is slag-free, meaning you get more metal down than with standard hard facing electrodes that leave a heavy slag coating that ends up on the floor.

Use to hard face parts experiencing high abrasive wear. Ripper points, disc blades, sweeps, and knives deposit hardness of RC 60-65.

Super Hard Tube

  • Super Hard Tube is a unique tubular hard-facing electrode
  • The thin-walled tubular construction contains the alloying elements
  • This enables the 1/4" electrode to weld at extremely low amperages from 80 to 100 amps and the 3/8" at 130 to 180 amps
  • The extremely low amperages make it suitable for coating parts with thin edges
  • Use for disc blades, sweeps, and knives
  • Deposit Hardness of RC 58-62

Super Chome

  • Super Chrome is a very smooth running electrode containing a high percentage of chromium carbides
  • It contains 38% alloy content
  • It is a solid core electrode with alloys in the coating
  • It runs great even on small AC welders
  • It has a self-releasing slag and a smooth deposit and accepts heavy impact
  • Use on Screws and Disc blades or crushing equipment
  • Deposit Hardness of RC 58-60

Hard Wear

Hard D

  • Hard Wear "D" is an economical, low alloy but a hard-facing electrode
  • Smooth running with little slag to remove, good out of position
  • Use as a general-purpose hard facing electrode where abrasion is not severe
  • Use on Ripper shanks, side of push arms, bucket teeth, etc.
  • Deposit Hardness of RC 60-65

Super Build-up

  • Super build-Up is designed as an underlayment for hard facing or to prevent metal wear
  • It has a high allow content of 40% and can be deposited on carbon or manganese steel
  • Hard facing deposits help prevent chunking out
  • Also great for preventing hitches and hitch pins from wearing out
  • Deposits weld on an RC 20 the work harden to RC 55

Hardfacing Powders and Torches

  • Super Hard Powder is severe abrasion and frictional wear resistance even in very thing overlays
  • Super Hard Smooth is for severe abrasion where a smooth finish is wanted
  • Super Build-Up Machinable deposit for steels and cast Iron
  • Stocking Torches, Eutectic or Victor Style Available

Super Hard Wire

  • Super Hard Wire is designed to resist extreme abrasive wear
  • It is an open arc wire which requires no shielding gas
  • It contains over 43% of complex carbides
  • Use to hard face parts experiencing high abrasive wear
  • Ripper points, disc blades, sweeps, and knives deposit hardness of RC 60-65

Hardfacing MeCaWear

A7 A high performance trowel grade ceramic polymer

MeCaWear A7 is a high-performance paste-grade polymer incorporated with fiber to reinforce the matrix to enhance the mechanical properties. This is a two-part coating that blends a high loading of fine spherical alumina within the resin, along with a hardening system once reacted and cured, providing you a surface with outstanding wear protection.

Not all Hard Facing Products Are the Same

1. ALLOY TYPE: This could be Chromium, Boron, Tungsten, Vanadium, Molly, Nickel, Carbon, or Molybdenum.

2. ALLOY PERCENTAGE: Hardness is not the determining factor in wear life." Some companies brag about their hard-facing rods' hardness (such as Rc 65, which is very hard), but if you check the alloy content, it may be only as low as 8%!

3. PRODUCT DESIGN: How the product is manufactured affects the way it welds and the deposit characteristics.
