For highly wear-resistant hardfacing layers

This composite wear plate comprises a base plate which has been overlaid, using a special metal arc welding process, with our highly abrasion-resistant VAUTID 150 hardfacing welding consumable.

In VAUTID 150, the abrasion wear resistance of a traditional chrome carbide alloy is significantly increased by the addition of boron.

Recommended applications:

  • Components which are exposed to temperatures up to 350°C.
  • To protect surfaces subject to a high level of abrasion combined with moderate shock loadings, e.g. compression screws and feeder screws, dust ducts, and separator and cyclone components.

This welding alloy is also available as a VAUTID hardfacing welding consumable (VAUTID 150).
